July 2005 Meeting

When: Thursday, July 7, 2005 — 7pm-9pm
Where: New Horizons

Topic: XSS and CSRF

Our regular monthly meeting for July will take place once again at New Horizons in Tucker, GA. As discussed at our June meeting, we will begin our meetings with 30 minutes of introductions, networking, and general discussion. Then, the presentation will begin at 7:30 PM.

The topic for the July meeting is yet to be determined, but the presentation will be given by Matt Kern on one of either PHP/Oracle, PHP/Firebird, or AJAX. If you have a preference, please note it with a comment below.

UPDATE (6/30): Matt may be available to make the meeting, but he has sold his house and is in the process of moving to Oregon, so he will not be able to plan for a presentation. Thus, the burden of the presentation has fallen to Ben for this instance, and so the topic has also changed. Ben will be giving a more in-depth presentation on XSS and CSRF. Following are more presentation details:

XSS and CSRF: Programmers Prepare, Users Beware
Cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forgeries (CSRF) are often confused as being one and the same, but this misconception can lead to disastrous results. In this talk, you will encounter each of these attacks through examples and learn to distinguish between them. You will also examine secure coding practices and techniques for prevention.
