zveloLABS once again attended the 2013 Hack In The Box (HITB) conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, held in mid-October. Of all the wide variety of talks conducted during the conference, I found two correlated with the vulnerabilities of RFID systems to be the most intriguing. I’ve summarized them below.
zveloLABS™ reported live from the 2011 Hack in the Box Security Conference (HITBSecConf) in Malaysia. Following are additional reflections about the conference and other highlights worth mentioning.
Hack in the Box Security Conference (HITBSecConf) – Malaysia 2011: Report #2 – Discussions About Web 2.0 Application Attacks and Web Threats
Day two of the 2011 Hack in the Box Security Conference closed as quickly as it started. zveloLABS™ has absorbed invaluable information about web threats that parallel the ongoing innovations of today’s Internet. The previous day’s discussions into traditional attacks against Web 1.0 applications have provided a foundation for today’s discussions on the gravity and severity of similar threats executed in the context of the Web 2.0 paradigm. In simple terms, most of the established web threats continue to persist in technologies such as AJAX, HTML5 and Silverlight, though often in a more subtle form. The difference is that now they are deployed in a much more sophisticated manner, while remaining equally threatening.
