[ NNSquad ] On Hacking MicroSD Cards

On Hacking MicroSD Cards

http://j.mp/19vRSPW  (bunnie's blog)

   "Today at the Chaos Computer Congress (30C3), xobs and I disclosed a
    finding that some SD cards contain vulnerabilities that allow
    arbitrary code execution - on the memory card itself. On the dark
    side, code execution on the memory card enables a class of MITM
    (man-in-the-middle) attacks, where the card seems to be behaving one
    way, but in fact it does something else. On the light side, it also
    enables the possibility for hardware enthusiasts to gain access to a
    very cheap and ubiquitous source of microcontrollers."

Worth noting that "bunnie" was also a principal in the creation of the
wonderful "Chumby" units. Though that project was a financial
failure, there are two of them ("Chumby One") here that are in almost
constant use.
