Case Studies
Investment Banking Sector

SecQuest were engaged by an Investment Bank to perform a technical security assessment from the guise of a disgruntled employee. The bank’s Internal Audit Team required assurance that technical controls were operating effectively, and managing the risk of a cyber attack by internal personnel, with ‘insider knowledge’ of the bank.

Financial Services Sector

SecQuest were engaged by a global financial management company, who had concerns that their cyber security controls could permit unauthorised access to client and company data. The Board were also unsure if the physical security controls, managing third-party access to meeting rooms, effectively protected access to their IT infrastructure.

Oil & Gas Sector

An international oil exploration company selected SecQuest to execute testing against their wide-area satellite and TETRA radio networks; as they had just completed upgrades of hardware and the Board were concerned that any compromise of these networks could have a direct impact on their brand, revenue and exploration / extraction sites.

Introduction: With advances in wireless technologies, it's becoming common to incorporate wireless technologies into everyday items, an example of this is wireless mice and keyboards. The concept of MouseJacking isn’t new as wireless attacks have been around for as long as wireless technology. The way some wireless mice and keyboards work is through the use of infrared waves that transmit signals to the receiver dongle which then interprets the peripherals input into machine-understandable input for the computer. If we listen to the connection between the dongle and the peripherals, we can capture and interpret the signals sent between the mouse/ keyboard and the dongle. If the devices do not have the appropriate security implementations in place, we will be able to mimic the signals with our dongle. This type of attack is simple and easy to implement and execute, an example of this can be seen here where we first will create our payload that will be interpreted by the wireless dongle.
