Presented at DEF CON 16 (2008)
Aug. 9, 2008, 4 p.m.
In this talk I will be discussing Exploit Chaining in Web Applications and CSRF. I will discuss the surface area problem in security and how to gain access to a l attack surface using CSRF. I will detail the process I used to find and exploit a vulnerability in a real world application. I will discuss how to have fun in a sandbox and defeating CSRF protection. I will also talk about the defenses against these attacks. I will be releasing an 0-day exploit and provide a machine for the audience to break into.
