This past weekend we hosted a hackathon at Deja vu Security! It was a semi-open event due to space and a few special guests joined us for a day of hacking!
We spent the day modding a toaster to bake circuit boards, took turns as an
analog pick and place, captured some chips and audio, cranked out code, and
overall enjoyed the day!
From the glowing maw of our DIY computer controlled oven magic smoke was breathed into a JTAGulator and a few FaceDancers.
Audio was captured to a particular entertaining target. Plans were created for a simple way to dump NAND flashes.
Due to fat fingered nmap scans we even found ourselves staring at the control systems for a warehouse. We'll be sending polite emails to the owners of said devices on the importance of networking controls.
Our Outlook Privacy Plugin got a new home and some much needed love!
More posts will follow detailing some of the fun we had, but a moment to reflect on our weekend. Play in a broader sense is what moves us forward in bounds while work is what keeps the machine turning. The more machines and automation we have to keep the wheel turning the more time we have play to create and hack the things we have.
