Introduction The heroic upsurge of the Azanian South African people against the racist South African regime has been going on for well over a year and a half. We have witnessed mass demonstrations, strikes, boycotts, etc. But even these killings have led to new mass demonstrations, as thousands have attended the funerals, to mourn the casualties as well as to organize for further actions. This movement shows the determination of the Azanian people to be masters in their own land, an independent Black republic.
Claudio Criscione Virtually Pwned: Pentesting Virtualization Virtualization systems are nowadays ubiquitus in enterprises of any size. Penetration testers and security auditors, however, often overlook virtualization infrastructures, simply looking at the virtual machines without any direct analysis of the underlying solution, not to mention those analyses simply marking virtual environments as "not-compliant".
A different, new approach is required to assess such systems, defining new targets and new ways to get there. This talk will outline procedures and approaches, complete with tools and demos, to execute a penetration test or a design review on virtualization enviroments.
Security experts eager to know more about these systems and sysops willing to protect their own fortress will find this talk interesting Tom Cross Unauthorized Internet Wiretapping: Exploiting Lawful Intercept For many years people have been debating whether or not surveillance capabilities should be built into the Internet.
Cypherpunks see a future of perfect end to end encryption while telecom companies are hard at work building surveillance interfaces into their networks. Do these lawful intercept interfaces create unnecessary security risks? This talk will review published architectures for lawful intercept and explain how a number of different technical weaknesses in their design and implementation could be exploited to gain unauthorized access and spy on communications without leaving a trace.
The talk will explain how these systems are deployed in practice and how unauthorized access is likely to be obtained in real world scenarios. The talk will also introduce several architectural changes that would improve their resilience to attack if adopted. We created a tool that allows you to easily jump into any JVM on your machine, and tamper with class bytecode, method parameters, return values - without requiring any pesky original source code, or the most elusive artifact - skill!
What happens when that applet you want to hack uses serialized objects over a custom encryption scheme, and you have 40 hours to break it? JavaSnoop will allow you to intercept calls inside the JVM for tampering with data before it gets to the network, while its still in object form!
What happens when that fancy desktop tool you have has an expired license? All this in a nice, portable GUI tool. Although the ideas behind these exploitation techniques can be traced quite far back, they are receiving more attention as non-executable memory protections become more prevalent.
This presentation will cover the current state of memory corruption exploitation and exploit mitigation as well as an in-depth discussion of a variety of return-oriented exploitation techniques.
Finally, the presentation will discuss what ramifications return-oriented exploitation techniques have for exploit developers, software vendors, malware analysts, and enterprise IT security professionals. Michael Davis Security is not a four letter word When security professionals talk with executives about security a four letter word normally comes to their mind — COST.
Most security professionals are like a deer in front of headlights when they need to justify or communicate additional investment in security. It is not their fault though as most education for security professionals never talks about IT security metrics, how to communicate security value, and, even though it is a soft skill, how to talk with executives.
|What is a "religion" for the purposes of this list?||Nowadays, the term has been expanded to CBRNe.|
|The Work Of A Nation. The Center of Intelligence.||Professor Forrester recognized the need for a better way of testing new ideas about social systems, in the same way we can test ideas in engineering.|
This paper and presentation aims to change this. In Junewe will be launching the last step in our research of this topic. We will leverage the readership of InformationWeek, of the largest IT magazines, and survey the IT security professionals to learn what metrics they are use, why they are using them, what is and is not working, and how the communicate to their executive management.(Reading the Diagram: The arrow indicates the direction of causation - that is, a change in the amount of pesticide applied causes a change in the numbers of insects damaging crops.
No, I’m not talking about the television networks; they can’t kill you, just dim your intelligence and contaminate you with incorrect information.

Adopted in , Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that provides health insurance for the poor and disabled.
The federal government offsets its share of the funding (roughly percent, depending on a state’s income) from general revenue.
