Satellite Hacking Lab

Have you heard?

They are hiding the Truth from us, and the hackers among us can finally prove it! A group of hackers have reportedly been able intercept communications with an ETHOS CubeSat, serving as an “imagery” platform in space, that indicates that the satellite may be up to something else beyond taking stunning photos of Earth.

The good news is that the ETHOS CubeSat will be passing over Ground Station – Deadwood for two days only, October 19th and 20th. We need your help to uncover the true mission of the satellite and one once and for all learn the Truth.

If you have ever dreamed of hacking a satellite, now is your chance, because once the two-day communication window closes, we may never be able to try again.

Bluetooth Lab

It has come to the WWHF staff that there is information hidden in Bluetooth devices which might aid in knowing a little more about the truth. If you would like to attempt to uncover the truth that may or may not be in Bluetooth, then you have to check out the Bluetooth Labs at the conference.

Doorbell Replay Lab

Sometimes you just need to capture bits of data floating in the air to uncover the truth. It might also be beneficial to replay that data. If this sounds appealing to you, then you should check out the wireless door bell relay attack where you get to capture data using a RTL-SDR (RealTek Limited Software Defined Radio) device and replay it with a yardstick-one! It’s a fun way to learn about SDR and its uses.

Keystoke Injection Lab

Information leaks can sometimes be captured by attacking keyboards and mice. This could aid in uncovering other truths, which might get you access to secret information. In the Keystroke Injection Lab, you can learn how to hijack a wireless mouse or keyboard.

Hall of Doors

So you need to sneak into a building to gather items or gain unauthenticated access to stuff. Then the Hall of doors lab is for you! Learn how to bypass doors with different security measures in place. It is essentially a playground where you can work on mastering your door bypass techniques.
