In this talk, I briefly introduce WebAssembly concepts , Ewasm specificity and opcodes/instructions. Secondly, I show how to create Ewasm smart contract and expose different techniques/tools to perform WebAssembly module closed-source analysis. Finally, we go through some basic examples to apply reversing (reverse engineering) on those Ewasm contracts and understand the logic inside.
In this blogpost, I will first explain the WebAssembly binary format and its sections. Then, I’ll demonstrate how to create a valid polyglot wasm module that contain an html/js payload embedded using 2 different techniques. Finally, I’ll give you the link to the github repository if you want to try on your own and learn more about WebAssembly
In this workshop, I will first introduce WebAssembly concepts and why it’s consider as a “game changer for the web”. Secondly, I will expose how to analyze a WebAssembly module using different techniques (static & dynamic) as well as some open-source tools that make you the life easier (Octopus, Wasabi, …). Finally, we will hands-on with simple examples/crackmes and finally go throws the analysis of cryptominers.
The following point will be discussed in this workshop.
The answer is of course YES and some WebAssembly modules are potentially running right now in your browser if you are using Google web services. Recently, Google was using WebAssembly for the beta version of Google Earth but also in production for services like Google Keep.
First, I will introduce WebAssembly concepts and how it is currently used. Secondly, I will analyze some Cryptominer module using static and dynamic analysis (reversing, decompilation, DBI, …) applied on WebAssembly. Finally, I will expose some techniques to detect and mitigate them.
WebAssembly (WASM) is a new binary format currently developed and supported by all major browsers including Firefox, Chrome, WebKit /Safari and Microsoft Edge through the W3C. This new format have been designed to be “Efficient and fast“, “Debuggable“ and “Safe” that why it is often called as the “game changer for the web“. More than one year after the “official” release, it is not only used “for the web” by web browsers but also in some (huge) other projects like Blockchain Smart Contract platforms (EOS and Ethereum).
I will first introduce WebAssembly concepts and who currently used it in the wild. Secondly, I will show different WebAssembly VM available and explain the security measures implemented into it. Finally, I will show you, throw real life WASM modules, how to do static analysis, using techniques such as reversing, control flow and calls flow analysis, to understand deeper its behaviors. Along the talk, I will used multiple open source tools but mainly the one that I have developed and that is already available on Github (Octopus).
