Exploits and Vulnerabilities Talk at the BABBQ

Last week’s Big Android BBQ was a great success. While this news writer wasn’t there, many fellow XDA members were, and they brought you coverage of the event. This includes the Session Roundups, the Samsung Developers Q&A, and there was even M_T_M admitting he stole the XDA banner a video introducing some of the moderators. It’s definitely some awesome stuff.

Sadly, one part of the BBQ that didn’t get video footage was a presentation by XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler and XDA TV Producer JordanKeyes. It was entitled Exploits and Vulnerabilities, and it showcased much of the hacking done on XDA, and how it differs from malicious hacking. The duo cover a range of topics, including a list of exploits such as TacoRootBurritoRootRageAgainstTheCage, and Gingerbreak, among others.

It also covers things like white hat and black hat hacking, and the differences between them along with a much more in depth look at Linux permissions. There really is a boat load of useful information and explanations enclosed. However, as mentioned, there isn’t any video footage of this and people wanted to see it. Luckily, Adam uploaded the presentation. If you’d like to have the original OPD file, check out Adam’s Google+ post. If you’d like to see the slides in photo form, we’ve set up a gallery where you can view them here.
