Win: “Remotely Exploiting the PHY Layer”

by Travis Goodspeed

Milton Security Group LogoPacket-in-Packet injections are a new type of in-band signalling attack, one which allows a packet to be injected into a remote wireless network through the body of any other type of packet. The attacker never needs a radio, and no software or hardware bugs are necessary for the injection to occur. The attack works on perfectly standard-compliant implementations of 802.15.4, 802.11B, and most other wireless protocols.

Travis won a Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter along with an iPod Touch to control it. Thanks to Milton Security Group supplying this awesome prize!
