Content-Type attack -Dark hole in the secure environment

Description: With the increased in security awareness it’s very difficult to compromise the network/workstation, as most of network administrator put very restrictive firewalll policy for incoming network traffic i.e. allow only traffic for http/https service and antivirus software can easily detect any virus/worm infected file. This talk is about content type attack that cannot be blocked at network perimeter/firewall and undetectable by antivirus. The discussion also includes demonstration of attack vector to compromise the system. At last it includes analysis of malicious file used to compromise the system.
