Is this DEFCON?  Black Hat?  Nope.  This is your local OWASP chapter here in
Austin bringing you one of the biggest names in the web app security space.
Come on out at the new time and learn about Sloworis.

*When:* July 28, 2009, 3:30pm - 5:00pm

*Topic: * Slowloris: A DOS tool for Apache

Slowloris was designed and developed as a low bandwidth denial of service
tool to take advantage of an architectural design flaw in Apache web
servers. It was quickly picked up and used by Iranian government protesters.
This speech will cover the technical issues around the design flaw, and the
events prior to, during and since the release of the tool.
