ISN Readers of new and old, here are some updates on upcoming Black Hat
briefings as well as ways to get involved.
BLACK HAT FREE WEBINAR Nov 20th
Black Hat Webcast #5 is scheduled for Thursday, November 20 at 1pm PST.
The topic this time is Clickjacking, and our featured guest is Jeremiah
Grossman, the co-discoverer of the widely publicized vulnerability.
For the uninitiated, it's a set of techniques discovered by Jeremiah
Grossman and Robert Hansen that allows an attacker to transparently
capture a user's clicks, forcing the user to do all manner of unpleasant
things ranging from adjusting security settings to unwittingly visiting
websites with malicious code.
The vectors for this attack include all the major browsers and Flash. In
co-operation with Adobe, the discoverers delayed public discussion to
allow a patch to be created. In the intervening time, other researchers
have made partial disclosures, but this is your chance to join
co-discoverer Jeremiah Grossman for a Black Hat webcast that deals with
the attack from all sides. Bring your questions - we'll have a Q&A
session after the presentation.
Black Hat Japan is in the books and we're already looking forward to the
Washington DC and Europe events. If you missed Black Hat Tokyo, we have
put all the material on-line for download, and are in the process of
getting the audio files tagged and on-line as well:
