Abstract “2012.eip=41414141” (Peter Van Eeckhoutte)
In this talk, Peter will provide an overview of the history of some of the memory corruption conditions in the Win32 environment. He will explain how these conditions, despite the introduction of several memory protection techniques in Windows Vista/2008/7/8, can still lead to arbitrary code injection & execution today. Finally, he will showcase how tools such as mona.py can assist with writing reliable exploits.

Abstract “Let’s Go Play In The Sandbox” (Didier Stevens)
Google Chrome, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader, ...
All these products have a feature to protect against the effects of exploits: a sandbox.
A sandbox does not prevent exploitation of a vulnerability, but it contains the running exploit in an environment (the sandbox) to prevent the exploit from modifying the operating system it is running on.

First we'll get into the underlying technologies of sandboxes, and then we'll discuss the different implementations of these sandboxes and point out important details when choosing and implementing.
As an IT pro, you'll be better informed to select the right product that offers the right sandbox for your needs, and as a developer, you'll hear about OS technologies that help you implementing your own sandbox in your software.
