Hi all

We are delighted to to welcome Gavin O’Gorman and Alain Abou Tass for our
latest OWASP Dublin Chapter meeting. Registration will start from 6:30pm
25th February with talks beginning at 7:00pm.

There will be beer and Pizza generously provided by Morgan McKinley


Gavin O’Gorman– Symantec -
Working in Symantec for the past six years, Gavin is an intelligence
analyst on the attack investigations team. Before moving to the attack
investigations team in 2013, he worked as a reverse engineer, and later as
an incident handler. Gavin’s primary role is to gather together information
from both Symantec data sources, and open sources, in order to build a
comprehensive picture of an attack, or attackers. Another aspect of the job
is to work with law enforcement to assist in the investigation of e-crime
where possible. Prior to working in Symantec, Gavin spent several years
researching network security in Dublin City University, and currently
lectures part-time for the Masters in Security & Forensics course.


Alain Abou Tass – Ward Solutions - Web applications on the battlefield
Penetration testers spend most of their time identifying security holes.
Sometimes if we’re lucky enough, we hit the jackpot. In this talk, I will
be detailing some instances of real life attacks on web applications. I’ll
show how one small vulnerability, in conjunction with others, can be lethal
and lead to a big breach. This will highlight the importance of fixing the
small issues that are usually neglected. Also, I’ll show some interesting
tricks that can be used to exploit existing vulnerabilities.
