24C3 – report part 9 – Security Nightmares 2008

Posted December 30th, 2007 by konrad

Frank and Ron filled the “told you so”-karma with the annual Security Nightmares presentation/brainstorming. After a short retrospect they had a look into the crystal ball. Some predictions that were mentioned:

  • hijacking of industrial robots will increase
  • people will go to jail due to wrong time zone configuration of log servers
  • more flash memory problems – e.g. no proper cleaning possible
  • more VoIP-hacks
  • hacking of large scale storage/computing backends like Amazon S3
  • malware for mobile phones especially on iPhone
  • crowed-sourcing for breaking CAPTCHA
