Hands-On Training with Spectre and Meltdown Proof of Concept
Take an adventure through Cyberspace as we scratch the surface of two vulnerabilities that shook the IT world in early 2018 - Spectre and Meltdown. In this webinar we will compile and run the proof of concept code for these two exploits in a safe online laboratory environment. We will also briefly touch on mitigation techniques for these attacks. Lab Objectives: Spectre: 1) Run the Spectre proof of concept in order to understand the offensive side of the vulnerability. 2) Check Windows control settings to see if the system is susceptible to the attack. 3) Go through the patching process in order to understand the defensive side of the vulnerability. Meltdown: 1) Run the Meltdown proof of concept in order to understand the offensive side of the vulnerability. 2) Check Linux kernel versions and patch levels. 3) Compare kernel versions and exploit possibilities.
