Tokens make the world go around. Therefore, we want to share with you the next teaser about Dawid Czagan’s training at DeepSec 2023. PDF files are everywhere and they can be used to hack your web application. Imagine that the attacker prepares a malicious PDF file which steals sensitive data from a user. The PDF file is uploaded to the web application, the user reads this PDF file, and finally sensitive data is exfiltrated from the user’s browser. It’s scary, isn’t it? Dawid will show you in a free video step by step how this attack works and how you can check if your web application is vulnerable to this attack. Watch the video and consider joining Dawid Czagan’s training Full-Stack Pentesting Laboratory: 100% Hands-On + Lifetime LAB Access (14-15 November, DeepSec 2023).
DeepSec 2018 Talk: Building your Own WAF as a Service and Forgetting about False Positives – Juan Berner
When a Web Application Firewall (WAF) is presented as a defensive solution to web application attacks, there is usually a decision to be made: Will this be placed inline (and risk affecting users due to outages or latency) or will it be placed out of band (not affecting users but not protecting them either). In his talk Juan Berner will cover a different approach you can take when deciding how to use any WAF at your disposal, which is to try and get the best of both worlds, making the WAF work in passive mode out of band detecting attacks and in active mode by selectively routing traffic through your WAF to decide if it should block the request or allow it. To achieve this you will have to abstract the WAF around a
