   19:00 - 19:50
   Title: HTML5 - A Whole New Attack Vector - presented by Robert McArdle

   Abstract: HTML5 opens up a wide and wonderful new world for Web Designers to explore - bringing
   fantastic new features that were previously only possible via Flash or horribly over-complicated
   Javascript. And HTML5 is not a future technology - chances are your favourite browser already has
   excellent support built in (unless you are still using IE).
   In this talk we will look at HTML5 from an attackers view-point. Because not only does HTML5 bring us
   Semantic web, editable content, inbuilt form validation, local storage, awesome video support and the
   long overdue death of <div> - it also opens up a host of new opportunities for attackers.
   We'll look at some of the troublesome new attacks that this new HTML5 standard introduces, how attackers
   can leverage these attacks to cause untold havoc on your machine, and how - with a little bit of help
   from some not so over-complicated Javascript - we can build Botnets in your Browser!

   Presenter: Robert is currently working as the manager of Trend Micro's Advanced Threat Research team in
   Europe, where he is involved in analyzing the latest malware threats, specializing in researching the
   future threat landscape and criminal underground. Robert is a regular presenter for the press and at
   security conferences. He has also written and lectures an MSc module in Malware Analysis at Cork IT and
   UCD, and is a trainer for several SANS qualifications. A graduate of Trinity and DCU he holds several
   qualifications from SANS and serves on the SANS advisory board.
