Lure10 is a novel technique presented at the Hack-in-the-Box 2017 conference in Amsterdam that
enables an attacker to automatically achieve a man-in-the-middle
position against wireless devices running the Windows operating system.
The attack requires no user interaction and exploits the "Wi-Fi Sense" feature found in recent versions of the Microsoft Windows platform.
CENSUS researcher George Chatzisofroniou presented a novel WiFi attack technique named 'Lure10' at the CommSec track of the Hack In the Box 2017 conference in Amsterdam. The technique allows the automatic association of a Windows device to an attacker-controlled WiFi access point. The attacker may then mount a series of Man-in-the-Middle attacks to the victim device.
CENSUS was one of the sponsors of the 5th InfoCom Security conference, that was held on April 1st, 2015 at the Divani Caravel hotel in Athens, Greece.
At the 17:30 session, our director of Security Testing services Mr Nikolaos Tsagkarakis delivered
a presentation entitled “‘Malicious’ Technologies” in which he showed how
technologies and techniques used by attackers can be used for the production of more secure systems.
