Senior SecureWorks Researcher Exposes Vulnerabilities in Wireless Device Drivers at Black Hat Conference
Senior researcher Dave Maynor, along with Jon "Johnny Cache" Ellch, revealed a vulnerability in the device drivers of several wireless cards at the first day of the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas.
This video presentation at Black Hat demonstrates vulnerabilities found in wireless device drivers. Although an Apple MacBook was used as the demo platform, it was exploited through a third-party wireless device driver - not the original wireless device driver that ships with the MacBook. As part of a responsible disclosure policy, we are not disclosing the name of the third-party wireless device driver until a patch is available.
