We will be giving a talk this Friday as the inaugural Bsides Philly 2016 conference. Slides will be posted after the talk.
Crashing Android phones via hostile networks
Mobile phone operating systems and other applications talk to other servers behind users’ back all the time. I will discuss how to leverage those channels by network level and state level attackers leading to phone crashes, and further steps towards full exploitation. I will also discuss several related vulnerabilities in non OS applications that are similar and implications for users and developers.
