The JARM’ing Adventures of a Weaponized Security Tool

Welcome to a journey involving geopolitics, code leaks and naughty adversaries turning security tools meant to protect into weapons of cyber war. Whilst researching for new tools and techniques utilized by a state sponsored, sanctioned propaganda network. Using various system OSINT tools, a pattern in the fingerprint of some of their malicious servers emerged. By JARM, a way to fingerprint system security configuration. Matching a security tool, I’d demoed a few times in the past. A tool that if weaponized could be brutal. Join me as I take you through the tools, risks, attempts at reporting and how to hunt other malicious systems used by sophisticated adversaries. You too can identify propaganda networks and weaponized tools using OSINT and JARM fingerprints.
