I'm pleased to announce the next meeting with Francis Brown, Blackhat
speaker and more importantly University of Pennsylvania graduate.

Next Meeting: *Monday October 3rd, from 6:30 - 8:00 PM*

*OWASP Philly/ Meeting - Fisher-Bennett Hall - 231*

*When:* Monday, Monday October 3rd from 6:30 - 8:00 PM
*Where:* University of Pennsylvania, Fisher-Bennett Hall - 231, Philadelphia


*Pulp Google Hacking – The Next Generation Search Engine Hacking Arsena*


*Abstract:*

Last year’s Lord of the Bing presentation stabbed Google Hacking in the
heart with a syringe full of adrenaline and injected life back into a dying
art form. New attack tools and modern defensive techniques redefined the way
people thought about Google Hacking. Among these were the first ever Bing
Hacking tool and the Google/Bing Hacking Alert RSS feeds, which have grown
to become the world’s single largest repository of live vulnerabilities on
the web. And it was only the beginning…

This year, we once again tear down the basic assumptions about what
Google/Bing Hacking is and the extent to which it can be exploited to target
organizations and even governments. In our secret underground laboratory,
we’ve been busy creating an entirely new arsenal of Diggity Hacking tools.
