ChicagoCon - Hacking the 2.0 Web Workshop

Special thanks to Don from ChicagoCon for having me... I had a great time with the workshop.  We had a mostly packed room and we truly found some scary Flash files out on the real internet out there.

Congrats to Samantha, John and Raffy for some of the great contributions to our "scavenger hunt" - you guys found some absolutely insane vulnerabilities in public web sites.

As you all saw, it's one thing to stand up in front of you and preach and lecture on web vulnerabilities and stupidities in Flash... but it's an entirely different thing for you to go out there and show you how to do it yourself.

I hope you all enjoyed the workshop as much as I enjoyed those 3+ hours we spent together.  I'd love to hear any thoughts on how you'll be taking that new knowledge back to your employer, if you're willing to share.

I saw the SWFScan tool release but it had been on my 'to do' list to check out. It was great to hear about it and see how it works straight from the source and then follow it up by actual usage in an open environment like that. It makes comprehension and retention that much easier. And we had a good time, too.
