In Friendly Traitor 2, Kevin Johnson and Mike Poor continue to explore the risks and threats exposed by the features that we keep demanding from developers. Our software clients are becoming more complex, and attackers have smelled the blood in the water and are attacking them in droves.

Kevin and Mike will begin by explaining some of the new features of HTML5 and JavaScript that are being rolled out, and subsequently exploited. The presentation then delves into the latest in Adobe Flash exploitation fun and finishes strong with presenting their latest research in mobile phone "feature" exploitation.

Throughout the talk, Mike and Kevin will be releasing exploit code and tools that target these features. They will also be releasing their latest additions to Wadfe Alcorn's BeEF exploit tool developed in order to exploit these technologies.
