Justin Clarke: SQL Injection Worms for Fun and Profit (PDF)

Earlier this year the first (publicly known) SQL Injection worm appeared. This worm used SQL Injection to insert malicious scripting tags into the pages of over 90,000 sites that were vulnerable to SQL injection.

Yet the exploit vector was fairly innocuous, easy to clean up, and easy to block. In other words, very much version 0.1 of what a SQL Injection worm can achieve.

This talk is going to discuss how far the rabbit hole can go with SQL injection based worms, including full compromise of the server OS, and why we should be worried by what is going to be coming next out of Russia/China/wherever, including a live demo of a proof of concept SQL injection worm, "weaponized".

Dinis Cruz: OWASP Summit 2008 Report

The OWASP Summit 2008 has been a great success. Dinis, also known as Chief OWASP Evangelist, is going to tell us what we've missed.

Justin Clarke: Protecting Vulnerable Applications with IIS7 (PDF)

With the advent of IIS7 and its modular design, Microsoft has provided the ability to easily integrate custom ASP.NET HttpModules into the IIS7 request-handling pipeline. This session will present an IIS7 module designed to leverage this architecture to actively and dynamically protect web applications from attack. With minimal configuration, the module can be used to protect virtually any application running on the web server, including non-ASP.NET applications (such as those written in PHP, Cold Fusion, or classic ASP).

This presentation will outline the overall design and architecture of the module, including a detailed explanation of available features and attack defense techniques. The session will focus on live demonstrations of how the module can easily be installed to protect already-deployed applications and how it can block both traditional web application attacks, such as SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting, and application-specific vulnerabilities like parameter manipulation and authorization attacks.

  • Presentations:
    • by Dinis Cruz (Chief OWASP Evangelist) :
      • OWASP, the Open Web Application Security Project 30m - The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to develop, purchase, and maintain applications that can be trusted. All of the OWASP tools, documents, blogs, and chapters are free and open to anyone interested in improving application security. In this presentation Dinis will show the latest guides and tools from OWASP which should be part of every company's security efforts.
      • Buffer Overflows on .Net and Asp.Net 30m - One of the common myths about the .Net Framework is that it is immune to Buffer Overflows. Although this might be correct in pure managed and verifiable .Net code, large percentage of .Net and Asp.Net applications code is unmanaged code. In this talk Dinis will show the areas in .Net and Asp.Net applications that are vulnerable to Buffer Overflows (including the demo of a .Net Buffer Overflow Fuzzer).
      • 0wning Vista's userland - The CAS / UAC missed opportunity , and what I think MS should had done - In this presentation Dinis will explore the missed opportunity by Microsoft to use technologies like .Net's CAS (Code Access Security) and Vista's UAC (User Access Control) to create secure and trustworthy userland environments that protect the user's assets. In the hope that might make a small difference, ideas and solutions for the future will also be presented.
