19:00 - 19:05 OWASP Limerick/Munster Chapter - Introduction, Agenda and Speakers

19:10 - 20:00 Zombie Browsers, spiced with Rootkit Extensions - presented by Balázs Zoltán

Abstract: As malicious browser extensions currently are not detected by antivirus products, they are able to do enormous harm - not only by compromising one’s personal online activities, personal data and accounts, but even his/her business data. Hardly any anti-malware product offers real protection against these attacks, and even mobile phones might be vulnerable.

Presenter: Balázs Zoltán (OSCP, C|HFI, CISSP, CPTS, MCP) is an ITSEC consultant at Deloitte. From 2006-2010 Zoltán worked as an IT Security Expert at Erste Bank Hungary, and from 2010 he works as an IT Security team leader, at Erste. On ITSEC conferences he likes to present about malwares, IPv6, pass-the-hash, browser malware.

20:10 - 20:50 Malware (zero-day) Analysis in an Operational Environment - presented by Richard Costelloe

Abstract: This presentation reviews a response-methodology to a multi-stage, 'zero-day' malware attack against a corporate information-systems network. Included in this analysis are detailed explanations of evasive techniques such as social-engineering, spear-phishing, SMTP spoofing, HTTP and JavaScript obfuscation, binary code-packing, password and data harvesting, data encryption and exfiltration, file-droppers, process-injection and bot-nets. Included will be an overview of defensive-methodologies and processes such as system and network hardening and monitoring, data de-obfuscation, decoding and decryption, static and dynamic analysis of malware code and binaries and forensic best practises.

Presenter: Richard Costelloe (MA, CISSP, CEH) is an Information-Security professional currently employed by Murex Dublin (Enterprise Risk Management), focusing on Information Security governance, compliance and policy development, risk-management, staff training & education, data-leaks, working with IT teams for system-hardening and penetration-testing and software-development teams with code-reviews and application-security audits for Murex’s Java/C++ products.
