Zeus C&C for Tech Support Abstract: Inspired by Adam Johnson’s presentation at GrrCON 2011 titled “ZeuS – Inside Command and Control” on how to build a ZeuS bot Exploit Kit Command & Control. I thought it would be fun to use this newly gained knowledge to build a C&C in an effort to provide tech support for my family members. Have you been in that situation where everyone you know comes to you with their computer problems? Just because you have a knack for technology, people you know seem to think that you enjoy fixing all their problems, most self-inflicted. Welp, here’s your chance to help them and have some real fun. This mostly hand’s on demonstration will walk through setting up your very own C&C and configuring the basic settings to get you started. When ready to rock, you will learn how to fun while fixing their problems. Live malware will be used during this presentation so make sure you turn off your WiFi.
