Today I make public ALL *recordings* and updated slides (+ FAQ) for my mobile security class, MOBISEC 2020!

Everything is available, for free, at: mobisec.reyammer.io/slides!

Few words about this release in a short thread 👇

Intel patched these vulnerabilities in the Management Engine as well.

It's still crazy to me how there's a whole OS that's hidden in the lower layers of your CPU... and that this OS supports Wi-Fi. twitter.com/vanhoefm/status/13

I found some design and implementation flaws in Wi-Fi again. All Wi-Fi devices are affected. It was a long ~9 months embargo, over this time a lot of info has been collected and that info now available at fragattacks.com
