It seems that the idea of naked browsers is becoming quite a trend; the ISSA – NoVA Chapter is the latest meetup group to tackle the topic of browser vulnerability in a supposedly ‘secure’ Web 2.0 world.
Featuring Michael Sutton of Zscaler Labs—who gave a similar talk at the February ISSA – DC Chapter meetup—attendees of the ISSA – NoVA Chapter meetup can expect a fair amount of obvious information (i.e. that patched and ‘secured’ browsers remain vulnerable) mixed with a great deal of eye-opening information that they may not have encountered before.
If you have a particular interest in social engineering or the use of social networking sites for effective attacks, this is a meetup that you won’t want to skip. To learn more about this meetup, keep reading below.
o The presentation will discuss how modern attacks are using social networking sites and other commonplace sites with intended browser functionality to develop highly damaging attacks.
