Kringlecon Escaping Python Shells

If you had told 8 year old me that one day I would get to travel to the North Pole, meet Santa Claus and speak at Kringlecon I would, in complete honestly, have thought you were crazy and ran screaming to my parents in fear of you.   But it happened!   I gave a short talk at Kringlecon.   The talk was an abbreviated version of the talk I gave at SANS Pen Test Hackfest in 2018.   I will also be giving the full talk a few time at SANS conferences in 2019 so come by and see it.
You can download the associated sample code and follow along at here.
Check out Kringlecon here.

You can watch the Kringlecon talk here:
