Pillaging DVCS Repos For Fun and Profit

Presented at ToorCon San Diego 13 (2011), Oct. 9, 2011, 2 p.m. (20 minutes)

Distributed Version Control Systems, like git are becoming an increasingly popular way to deploy web applications and web related resources. Research shows these repositories commonly contain information very useful to an attacker. This talk will demonstrate how to identify these repositories and techniques to pillage just as much information as possible from them. Lastly there will be a demonstration of the DVCS pillage toolkit to automate data extraction from identified repositories.
