Agenda for the meet-up:

Title: Pushing Left Like a Boss
With incident response and penetration testing currently receiving most of our application security dollars, it would appear that industry has decided to treat the symptom instead of the disease. “Pushing left” refers to starting security earlier in the SDLC; addressing the problem throughout the process. From scanning your code with a vulnerability scanner to red team exercises, developer education programs and bug bounties, this talk will show you how to ‘push left', like a boss.

Title: Crypto-mining: The New Force Behind Remote Code Execution Attacks

Remote Code Execution (RCE) attacks involving crypto-mining are gaining momentum. They've become attackers' new favorite way to exploit vulnerabilities in web application source code and are prevalent in over 88% of all RCE attacks. In this talk we will investigate the methods attackers are using to infect with crypto-mining malwares, specifically how they exploit RCE and insecure deserialization vulnerabilities in order to launch their attacks. We will analyze malicious crypto-mining scripts and see how the attackers make money by tracing their actual crypto wallets and mining pools. We will also explain why although there is a surge in crypto mining attacks, we have not seen any Bitcoin mining, only mining of other crypto currencies.
