Risky Business #162 -- Pwning the Mars Rover with H D Moore

H D Moore's VxWorks research is out of this world...
06 Aug 2010 » Risky Business

On this week's show chat to H D Moore about his research into the security -- or lack thereof -- of the VxWorks embedded operating system.

H D did a presentation at the Security B-Sides event that ran concurrently with Black Hat in Las Vegas. As it turns out VxWorks is used in a lot of places and the people who put it together suck at maths.

People who suck at maths write bad hashing algos. Really.

We'll also have a chat with Ron Gula of Tenable Network Security in this week's sponsor interview, and of course, Adam Boileau stops by for a chat about the week's news headlines.
