Unpatchable Cyber Vulnerabilities
February 3, 2015 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Cyber attacks are increasing, both in number and in scope. However, an increasing number of these are now affecting devices that cannot be patched. In this talk, Mr. Lee will discuss several examples of significantly harmful vulnerabilities that affect consumer routers, tablets, and mobile phones. Not only are the effects of these attacks harmful, but these devices are no longer supported by the manufacturer, so they cannot be patched to fix the problems. These unpatchable vulnerabilities are not just a problem for home users. Corporations will feel the effects when these devices are brought into corporate networks under BYOD policies and connected to corporate VPNs.
After the presentation, we will spend a few minutes discussing what topics we would like to hear about in 2015. So come prepared with what topics you would like to learn and the names of any speakers you would like to hear.
