Charley Celice in association with The Cyber Academy and ENUSEC is hosting a Master Class on the latest vulnerabilities on Tuesday 10 November 2015 in the  Glass Room at Merchiston, Edinburgh Napier University from 1pm until 4pm.

It is free to attend and will demonstrate some of the latest vulnerabilities including WebView, ShellShock, Heartbleed, StageFright, FREAK, Logjam, Cryptolocker, and others.

Stage Fright is one of the most recent vulnerabilities and allow a malicious agent access to a device by sending a video or audio file to the target. At present, too, WebView affects over one billion Android devices around the World, and can allow remote access to a mobile device. Your Apple Mac is also not immune from vulnerabilities, and the event will showcase ShellShock which affects Linux-based systems.

It is organised by Charley Celice, the UK Cipher Cracking winner, and focuses on practical demonstrations, and aims to showcase how a range of devices are vulnerable and how they can be protected.
