How to REACT to JavaScript [In]Security

According to a StackOverflow survey, JavaScript is the most commonly used programming language on earth. Today just the client-side JavaScript ecosystem has over 50 frameworks available, and JavaScript is successfully conquering the server-side space. The amount of application logic that is executed in the browser is growing every year, which means the attack surface is growing as well. Which security issues are most common in JavaScript applications? Do new frameworks provide the security controls needed to protect the growing amount of client-side code? In this talk we will answer these questions and, as an example, we will look at one of the hottest JavaScript frameworks today – React. We will discuss its new features like components and server-side DOM rendering, analyze React’s security posture and demonstrate existing vulnerabilities.

So you think IoT DDoS botnets are dangerous – Bypassing ISP and Enterprise Anti-DDoS with 90’s technology

Stressers/Booter services is providing “DDoS as A Service” and they are getting more and more powerfull, measured in amount of traffic, but the current resources they use could be improved, and optimized, and perform a much more
dangerous and advanced attack patterns that can bypass large Anti-DDoS solutions through pre-analysis and data-mining with big data analysis and OSINT informaiton as source.
The research will show a framework on how attackers can optimize attacks based on a combination of big-data analysis and pre-attack analysis, that will show that terabit attacks are not necessarily needed, and why 90’s technology is prefered over IoT Worms and other fancy gadgets.

This presentation will cover the various pieces of intelligence that can be collected from each stage of a phishing attack (lure, phishing site, phish kit) and discuss how each piece allows us to progress an investigation. We will look at various analytical techniques that can be performed to track phishing campaigns and enhance detection. The second half of the presentation will cover an in-depth, real-world case study of the practical application of these techniques, starting with a single phishing lure and ending with the identification of a primary phishing threat actor.
