What Live presentation: “Better Watch Your Apps”
Where NAISG HouSecCon — The Houston Security Conference
When November 4, 2010 1:15pm CT
Description Driven by the need for 24×7 connectivity, mobile Web technologies have become a wildly popular source of income for businesses and developers. Developers can submit their applications to smart-phone markets without triggering the usual quality checkpoints required in corporate software development; add to this that a number of 3rd party apps connect back to equally unsecured Web APIs, and risk is introduced for companies and consumers alike. In this presentation, MJ Keith will explore a variety of abuse scenarios. From exploiting mobile websites to cheating scoreboards and exploiting mobile phones themselves, he will demonstrate different ways that mobile technology users, and their employers, can be exposed to compromise.
