Offensive Window Event Logs for Red Teams
Tim Fowler

Do you know what could be lurking in your Windows event logs? For years, blue teams have been using Windows event logs to track the activities of red teams and threat actors alike, but now we flip the table and use the logs for offensive purposes. Starting with the first public disclosure, this talk takes the attendees through the steps of developing working PoCs and the lessons learned along the way. Attendees will be shown multiple techniques to leverage this capability for persistence and potentially more. Windows event logs are a prime place to store payloads and shellcode, so blue teams better be ready.
