18:15 - 19:00 : AJAX’ Hammer - Harnessing AJAX for CSRF Attacks

Oren Ofer, Ernst & Young

As the security level of web sites and browsers improves, hackers devise creative ways to achieve their goals - small loopholes within the browsers security rules. One of these ways is the Cross-Site Request Forgery attack – an attack that enables malicious 3rd parties to instruct users’ browsers to perform operations in vulnerable applications on their behalf.

AJAX XMLHttpRequest object was a previously considered a fortress, presumably more protected against CSRF than "normal" HTTP requests, due to the restrictive same origin policy which browsers impose, a policy that prevents it from being "redirected" to 3rd party web sites...

But good things never last forever... and in this lecture we will present how AJAX can be harnessed for elaborate CSRF attacks that can even bypass commonly flawed ANTI-CSRF implementations.

19:00 - 19:30 : DoS via Hash Collisions in Web Platforms
