Evan Jensen will talk about "ELF Aware Backdoors" which he will be presenting at ReCon Montreal.

"This deep dive into the ELF file format culminates in a demo of 'linking' new high level code into a third party pre-compiled executable. Unlike Joshua Pitts’ the-backdoor-factory, this new deployment solution allows users to write high level code without needing to bypass application hardening or traditional host based intrusion detection systems. Users can write generic code or application specific backdoors in C or C++. An example application specific backdoor will also be presented on software in a popular Linux repository. The presented 'linking' software has applications not only in covert software deployment but also instrumentation, testing and lulz."

Second presentation is titled "Building a Semi Secure Home Network" by Ori & Max.

"Come hear about making your home network more secure and/or feature flush while we have some fun with memes. Get ready to make a shopping list(or not) and start planning some upgrades."

Please send us your ideas for future month talks, whether you want to present or just simply interested in hearing about certain topics.
