In this demo-heavy webinar, Jay Beale goes cyberpunk, attacking a Neuromancer-themed Linux capture-the-flag (CTF) machine called “Wintermute.”
Jay will emulate an attacker in his Red team mode, using a chain of vulnerabilities to compromise this classic science fiction-inspired vulnerable virtual machine, picking up flags as he goes.
Then, Jay will switch into Blue team mode to demonstrate a proactive defense that not only breaks the attack chain he launched earlier, but also fends off other possible attacks.
Don’t miss this fun and useful webinar where you’ll get the chance to hone both your attack and defense skills! After the webinar, download the Wintermute CTF machine and a copy of Kali Linux to repeat Jay’s attack, and to explore defensive countermeasures for yourself!
