SyScan 2012 was a blast. I talked shit about EFI rootkits, which was pretty fun. My slides are uploaded here if you’re interested.
A couple of highlights for me were Brett Moore’s talk about process continuation (I’m kinda surprised IE didn’t crash spontaneously and ruin his demos), Alex Ionescu’s talk about ACPI 5.0 rootkits (Alex lost his laptop on the way over and had to rewrite his talk AND demos - still nailed it), and Stefan Esser’s talk about the iOS kernel heap (crossover with OS X kernel is very interesting to me). Oh and the chilli crab.
I’ll definitely be making an effort to get over to Singapore for SyScan 2013. Thomas Lim knows how to put on a con/party.
