DEFCON 17 Presentation and Videos Now Available
Mike and I presented CSRF: Yeah, It Still Works to a receptive DEFCON crowd, where we took specific platforms and vendors to task for failing to secure their offerings against cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks.
Dan Goodin from The Register did a nice write-up on the talk wherein he cleverly referred to some of the above mentioned as the Unholy Trinity. ;-) See if you can spot in the presentation slides why that reference is pretty funny.
For those of you who are interested in the talk but weren't able to attend, the presentation slides are here, and links to the associated videos are embedded in the appropriate slides. The videos are big AVI files so you'll be a lot happier downloading them.
I'll be following up on some very interesting questions that arose during Q&A after this talk, so stay tuned over the next few weeks for posts regarding sound token implementation, CSRF mitigation and Ruby, and the implications of CSRF attacks on forensic investigations.
