DRAMMER wins CSAW Applied Research Best Paper Award
After winning a Pwnie Award at Blackhat and the Dutch Cyber Security Research Paper Award, our paper on Drammer (with Victor van der Veen, Kaveh Razavi, Cristiano Giuffrida, and Herbert Bos) has also won the CSAW Prize for best Applied Research paper. Drammer is a new attack that exploits the Rowhammer hardware vulnerability on Android devices. It allows attackers to take control over your mobile device by hiding it in a malicious app that requires no permissions. Practically all devices are possibly vulnerable and must wait for a fix from Google in order to be patched. Drammer has the potential to put millions of users at risk, especially when combined with existing attack vectors like Stagefright or BAndroid.
