OWASP Israel Feb 2013 meeting was held on the 12/2/2013 Tuesday at the E&Y training center located in Meitav 6 st. Tel Aviv (see map below).

The meeting’s agenda was:

17:00 – 17:30 Gathering, Pizza & soft drinks.

17:30 – 17:45 Opening note.

17:45 – 18:30 An introduction to pythonect for security professionals - Itzik Kotler

Abstract: Pythonect is a new, free and open source dataflow programming language. It is an attempt to fuse the intuitive feel of shell scripting (and all of its perks like implicit parallelism) with the flexibility and agility of Python. Pythonect is perfect for rapidly prototyping and testing everything from reverse engineering tools to fuzzers and penetration testing scripts. This talk will introduce Pythonect, the automation gap it fills, and its features. Example scripts are included to showcase concepts and ideas

18:30 – 19:15 Web crime DOES pay - unless you get caught!! - Renana Friedlich

Abstract: But let us say you DID get caught!! - What if the crime was committed in Country A, the proxy is in Country B, and the target is in Country C?

  • Where is the jurisdiction authority?
  • What are the indictment procedures?
  • By which laws should you be judged?

Can SQL injection put you in jail? Can XSS? And CSRF? What actually constitutes a computer crime?

And let's not forget computer crime cooperation between countries:

  • What exists and what doesn't
  • What are your chances to be extradited?

Let's say you were indicted...

  • Did you know you can get up to life sentence for computer crime?
  • On the other hand... is it really so hard to get away clean?

This lecture will answer all these questions and will fill the gap between web oriented attacks to computer crimes .

19:15 – 19:30 coffee break.
