The premier cybersecurity conference took place last week in Las Vegas. In case you weren't able to attend, PC Magazine has an awesome summary of the most significant and ominous developments at Black Hat 2015.
In the words of Max Eddy writing for PCMag: "Black Hat bills itself as the premiere show for offensive security, and it lived up to its promise. This year, we knew we'd hear about hacking Linux-powered rifles, remotely taking control of cars, and attacking Android phones with malicious text messages. But that was only the beginning.Though the Stagefright Android vulnerability was on everyone's mind, another Android security flaw was just as terrifying. This one allowed a clever attacker to use dormant plug-ins on most Android devices to take control of the phone as if the attacker were holding it. Other research focused on a clever attack that could steal all of your files from a cloud storage service without you ever being the wiser."
