6:00 - 6:20 Peer-to-Peer Networking with Tea & Coffee Pizza and Beer 6:20 - 6:30 Sydney Chapter News 6:30 - 7:30 ish Presentations
Please RSVP to email@example.com so I can get an idea of numbers.
The plan is to run an informal workshop style presentation with the following objectives: - Provide an introduction to PDF format, scripting capabilities and other “features” you wouldn’t expect to see in a document format - Learn some basic tools & techniques for analyzing malicious PDF files, for great justice - Learn some basic tools & techniques for creating malicious PDF files, for great science - Look at the security implications of PDFs and what can be done in an enterprise environment to reduce these risks (uninstall Reader?)
I’ve been looking at the security of Acrobat, and specifically Acrobat scripting for a while now, so hopefully I have some useful tips but I heartily invite everyone to contribute. Bring your laptops, have a bash at it, or not and we’ll just have a spirited discussion about the joys of Adobe software security. No prior knowledge PDF knowledge required.
