Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Unfortunately today, hackers and cybercriminals have holidays, days off and vacations too - and It is very unlikely for them not to employ their infosec and social engineering skills and to organize their travel. We will talk on how they have created their own ecosystem, that exploits literally all hospitality and travel industry for their own needs.  This presentation covers underground activities related to the Travel and Hospitality industries, including Underground travel agencies, cheap flights, hotels, car rentals and unveils mechanisms and modus operandi for these services. This includes a variety of abuses, from business process compromises to credit card fraud and  exploitation of vulnerabilities in traveling systems and mileage programs. With this talk we hope to bring more attention to the on-going criminal activities related to travel and hospitality industries.
