Pillaging DVCS Repos For Fun And Profit

Presented at DEF CON 19 (2011), Aug. 6, 2011, 6:30 p.m. (20 minutes)

Distributed Version Control Systems, like git are becoming an increasingly popular way to deploy web applications and web related resources. Our research shows these repositories commonly contain information very useful to an attacker. This talk, which was part of my small contribution to the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) will demonstrate how to identify these repositories and techniques to pillage just as much information as possible from them. Lastly there will be release of a toolkit to automate the the discussed techniques supporting git, hg and bzr repositories!
