  • Go all the way to the top floor of SOHO
  • This month we have two talks:

    Web to Shell by Darren Fitzpatrick (45 mins approx)

    Darren will introduce the concept of getting a shell through a website. This basically means remotely taking over the server on which a web application is installed. After a little theory, he will go about delivering demonstrations of this in action. Demos will include common attack vectors of this type and one recent and quite common ruby on rails specific remote exploit.


    How I got into Security by Jack Baylor (20 mins approx)

    In this short talk I'll be covering:

    * my education and previous work experience
    * what courses I wish I'd covered but didn't
    * how I got interested initially
    * how I started researching and networking
    * how I came about working in Qualcomm
    * how some others broke into security (through polling others here and through talking to people on LinkedIn etc...), 
    * what courses I intend to take in the next 1, 2 and 5 years


    Doors open at 19:00, talks start around 19:15
