Just to aware to all members in OWASP Malaysia mailing list. We have 2 topic
will be talk about :

1) Outbound Monitoring - the Forgotten Child in Infosec

Outbound content compliance (also outbound content security) is a relatively
new segment of the computer
security<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_security>field, which
aims to detect and prevent outbound content that violates
policy of the organization and/or government
regulations.<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outbound_content_compliance#cite_note-0>It
deals with internal threats, as opposite to more traditional security
solutions (firewall <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewall_%28computing%29>,
anti-virus <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-virus>, anti-spam etc.), that
are dealing with external threats. Therefore, it is sometimes called
inside-out security.

 2) Introduction to the new and highly lethal HTTP DDOS attack technique.

This kind of attack is particularly troublesome to deal with. While
simplistic packet-based attacks can be more easily mitigated upstream, with
an HTTP-based attack it is often difficult to distinguish attack traffic
from legitimate HTTP requests. And because the attack consumes resources
from the webserver, not just the system TCP/IP stack, it can quickly bring
even a well-tuned webserver to its knees unless the target has
better-than-average resources at its disposal to help weather the storm

Here a basic knowledge of our topic that we can discuss. Our 2nd meeting
will talk about this technical on our security field and we will know what
technology update the technique surpass the security. So just hang out 2
hour and we share the knowledge to all members. For detail please visit our
