Newcastle University Presentation

Posted on 21 May 2022

I presented my talk “From Zero to SSRF to RCE and back again” to the Newcastle University Competitive Computer Science Society, in the talk I explain “Ethical Hacking Journey - Attackers Mindset” where I guide the audience through my own practical security research experience developing CVE-2020-5014. I walk through the process of information gathering, vulnerability scanning and exploit development. Swapping between slides and the command line to perform the exploit live. I then explain the process of reporting a vulnerability and my experience as a blue team responding to these kinds of reports.
