Zero to Millionaire in 60 minutes: Hacking Real Life Financial Applications

SINCON 2020 Conference Deep-Tech Track

Day 1 (2 Jan 2021)


@ Main Stage


The talk will revolve around us red-teamers bypassing and exploiting Banking Logics, Mobile wallets and Non-Banking Financial applications to get free pizzas. We will cover bugs not only in payment gateways and frameworks but also in applications that fail to implement them properly. From bypassing AES encrypted requests, exploiting net banking and core banking product implementations to logical flaws in some of the biggest product, services and NBFC websites we tested. We will walk you through each type of vulnerability with real-life PoCs. We will talk about techniques using which we were able to make recurring deposits in our account which get debited from victim's accounts, view statements of arbitrary accounts, buy products for free, pay loan instalments, credit card bills, electricity bills, telephone bills all for free, regenerate ATM pins of bank accounts at mass and most importantly getting an unlimited lifetime supply of free hoodies and pizza. All the numerous exploits will be along with real-life case studies, patches and recommendations.
