19:00 - 19:05 OWASP Limerick/Munster Chapter - Introduction, Agenda and Speakers
19:10 - 20:00 Zombie Browsers, spiced with Rootkit Extensions - presented by Balázs Zoltán
Abstract: As malicious browser extensions currently are not detected by antivirus products, they are able to do enormous harm - not only by compromising one’s personal online activities, personal data and accounts, but even his/her business data. Hardly any anti-malware product offers real protection against these attacks, and even mobile phones might be vulnerable.
Presenter: Balázs Zoltán (OSCP, C|HFI, CISSP, CPTS, MCP) is an ITSEC consultant at Deloitte. From 2006-2010 Zoltán worked as an IT Security Expert at Erste Bank Hungary, and from 2010 he works as an IT Security team leader, at Erste. On ITSEC conferences he likes to present about malwares, IPv6, pass-the-hash, browser malware.
