Jailbreak Security Summit

Jailbreak Security Summit 2015

May 8, 2015 Laurel, MD

Dale Robson, CyberPoint International: "How OS X malware is upping its game."

Robson considers Mac sandboxes and malware, addressing the sandbox problem from the perspective of a reverse engineer. He asks the audience to consider how "basic irritants" interact with the Internet. He also asks them to consider controls: privilege separation, signature checks, hardening, behavioral limitation, containers, etc. After outlining possibilities, he offers an explanation of the general lack of publicly available sandbox escapes in terms of the economic realities of crimeware. Presented at the Jailbreak Security Summit, May 8, 2015, Laurel, Maryland, USA.
