Anton Rager: "The Evils of XSS: Its not just for cookies anymore"
+
 
+
Many security professionals, security administrators and developers are aware of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, but disregard them as a significant risk to an organization. Traditionally XSS attacks have either involved nuisance re-direction of a client or leakage of client cookies/state information to an attacker. They are almost always a one-shot XSS exploit against a vulnerable server and dont have the ability to execute multiple transactions against an XSS vulnerable site.
+
 
+
This presentation briefly outlines current XSS attacks, then discusses and demonstrates methods to create multi-transaction XSS attacks or persistent XSS based browser hi-jacking. Browser hi-jacking uses the victim browser to leverage existing trust that a browser may have with an XSS vulnerable site, and performs an arbitrary number of transactions from the victim browser against the vulnerable site. This means that the attacker can use the victims browser to attack a site that is behind a firewall, requires client-side certificates, filters IP addresses, or has a cached authentication with the victim browser this is way beyond cookie theft as an attacker is actually using the victims browser to access the site. Attack modes can include transparent site traversal thru victim browser (read and/or write to server with access of victim from remote attack console), passive monitoring of victim interaction with target site, or active MITM content modification of information to/from victim browser.
+
 
+
A custom tool (XSS-Proxy) will be demonstrated that demonstrates the ability for a remote attacker to perform these XSS based attacks. XSS persistence and commands are controlled from a Perl based HTTP attack server with victim/XSS target content forwarded to the same server. This does not rely on any new vulnerability in browsers and currently works in modern JavaScript enabled IE and Mozilla/Firefox based browsers.
+
 
+
Presenter: Anton Rager

Anton Rager is an independent security researcher focused on vulnerability exploitation, VPN security and wireless security. He is currently a programmer with an undisclosed network storage startup where he focuses on application development, Linux network magic, and Linux kernel/driver hacking.

====Thursday, June 27th at 6pm – Gene Kim: Why We Need DevOps Now====
He is best known for his work with 802.11 wireless WEP security and associated testing/analysis tools. In 2001 he released WEPCrack, the first open-source, public domain utility to validate the WEP/RC4 attack discovered by Fluhrer, Mantin and Shamir. Anton was also a Contributing Technical Editor to the book Maximum Wireless Security. In 2003 he continued researching 802.11/WEP and developed an injection attack and open-source tool (WEPWedgie) that allows network scanning attacks of WEP encrypted networks without knowledge of WEP keys. This tool/attack is mentioned in the book WI-FOO: The Secrets of Wireless Hacking as well as multiple online articles.
+
  
Anton has also focused heavily on IPSec VPN security issues and in 2001 implemented the first open-source utility to allow password attacks against IKE based IPSec VPN connections (IKECrack). Follow-on IPSec research resulted in an IKE protocol testing tool (IKEProber) that highlighted multiple vulnerabilities in common IPSec client/gateway implementations.
 
  
More recently he has been working with web application security issues and in 2005 devised a novel Cross-Site-Scripting (XSS) attack method and open-source tool (XSS-Proxy) to allow browser hijacking with XSS vulnerable sites. This tool/attack is also highlighted in Phishing Exposed book and as well as the book XSS-Attacks that he co-authored with other leading XSS researchers.
+
'''About the speaker'''<br>
Anton has presented at well-known security conferences and has conducted many security training and security awareness primers with industry and government sectors. He currently resides and works near Denver, Colorado. In addition to an addictive computer security hobby, Anton is also an extreme mountain biker, snowboarder, naturalist, guitarist and philosopher hack.

Gene’s area of passion is helping companies build super-tribes where Development, IT Operations, Product and Project Management and Information Security simultaneously maximize throughput of features from “code complete” to “in production,” without causing chaos and disruption to the IT environment. He’s helped some of the largest Internet properties, such as Microsoft, Yahoo!, AOL and Microsoft companies he’s worked with Microsoft. He loves finding and fixing bottlenecks which impede and frustrate the entire organization, enabling management from each tribe to achieve the greater organizational goals.

Upcoming Events

Thursday, June 27th at 6pm – Gene Kim: Why We Need DevOps Now

About the speaker
Gene Kim is a multiple award winning CTO, researcher and author. He was founder and CTO of Tripwire, which commercialized the open source software he wrote in 1992 with Dr. Gene Spafford at Purdue University. He is the author of “The Visible Ops Handbook,” and “The Security Visible Ops Handbook,”which has sold over 200K copies to date. Gene is also the author of The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win.

Gene’s area of passion is helping companies build super-tribes where Development, IT Operations, Product and Project Management and Information Security simultaneously maximize throughput of features from “code complete” to “in production,” without causing chaos and disruption to the IT environment. He’s helped some of the largest Internet properties, such as Microsoft, Yahoo!, AOL and Microsoft companies he’s worked with Microsoft. He loves finding and fixing bottlenecks which impede and frustrate the entire organization, enabling management from each tribe to achieve the greater organizational goals.

When Thursday, June 27th
Agenda 6:00 - 6:30: Food, drink, and networking
6:30 - 7:00: Chapter business and group discussion
7:00 - 8:00: Why We Need DevOps Now: A Fourteen Year Study Of High Performing IT Organizations
Gene will present his findings from an ongoing study of how high-performing IT organizations simultaneously deliver stellar service levels and deliver fast flow of new features into the production environment. To successfully deliver against what on the surface appear to be conflicting objectives, (i.e. preserving service levels while introducing significant amounts of change into production), requires creating a highly-coordinated collection of teams where Development, QA, IT Operations, as well as Product Management and Information Security genuinely work together to solve business objectives.
Gene will describe what successful transformations look like, and how those transformations were achieved from a software development and service operations perspective. He will draw upon fourteen years of research of high-performing IT organizations, as well as work he's done since 2008 to help some of the largest Internet companies increase feature flow and production stability through applications of DevOps principles.
Location Aerstone, located at 1711 Pearl St. (3rd floor).
Parking Free parking one block north of Aerstone through the Whittier Neighborhood Zone.
Virtual Remote attendees may participate through WebEx.
RSVP Available through MeetUp.com.
