19:15 Reversing Malware by Abdullah Obaied.

Malware is any software intentionally designed to abuse the capability of its system API to cause damage to a computer, server or computer network. In this talk, Abdullah Obaied will demonstrate the tooling and methodology used to reverse malware and understand its limits.

Abdullah Obaied works as a security specialist in Adjust, a mobile analytics company. He works the company's Fraud Prevention team to research current and future Ad Fraud schemes and develop appropriate counter measures.

19:45 Sensitive files on webservers - Using the front door ;-) by Sebastian Neef.

There are millions on webservers on the internet hosting an even bigger number of websites. Depending on the security-awareness of website developers and server administrators, sensitive files may end up being exposed to the internet.
In this talk, Sebastian Neef will give an overview over his research and demonstrate how tiny files may lead to trivial server pwnage.
The results show that even high-traffic websites from the Alexa Top 1M can be affected. In that case, attackers do not have to use complex exploits or backdoors, but the public-facing, open front door.

Sebastian Neef is a MSc student at the TU-Berlin, a freelancer in the infosec field and a security researcher in his spare time. Also, he loves bugbounties and CTFs.
