The SF chapter of OWASP had a meeting today and it rocked. Alex Stamos from iSEC Partners (whom also hosted the meeting) presented ‘Breaking AJAX Web Applications: Vulns 2.0 in Web 2.0’ and Jeremiah Grossman from WhiteHat Security presented ‘Hacking Intranet Websites from the Outside’. I believe both of these talks were presented at DEFCON earlier this year, but since I was in Hawaii at the time, it was good to see these talks.
After seeing how many security professionals showed up to the meeting, it made me want to create a sf / bay area security group. There have been lots of local security groups popping up recently, like NYSEC, NoVASec and BeanSec. Anyone else interested in this?
