 If you still didn’t have vaca­tions, maybe it is worth to wait until the end of the Octo­ber and visit the Hack In The Box con­fer­ence in Malaysia. Let’s take a look on some of the speak­ers and their top­ics.

Prob­a­bly one of the most inter­est­ing top­ics will be intro­duced by Kris Kasper­sky, he will talk about the Intel CPU bugs that lead to remote code exe­cu­tion regard­less to the oper­at­ing sys­tem used and show attacks based on JavaScript or just TCP/​IP pack­ets against Intel based machine.

Akshay Agrawal, Prac­tice Man­ager at Microsoft Infor­ma­tion Secu­rity ACE Team brings the infor­ma­tions about the pos­si­bil­ity of pre­dic­tion and influ­ence on people’s behav­ior based on infor­ma­tions about peo­ple in the phys­i­cal world in con­junc­tion with social net­work­ing phe­nom­e­non.

AR from Securebits intro­duces the Next Gen­er­a­tion Reverse Shell — new orig­i­nal imple­men­ta­tion of reverse shell, that brings the flex­i­bil­ity in chang­ing the pro­to­col car­rier, con­ti­nu­ity and main­tain­ing of the estab­lished ses­sion, IDS eva­sion and more.

Saumil Shah from Net-​Square will speak about the browser secu­rity and how next gen­er­a­tion of the Javascript deliv­ered exploits ren­der cur­rent defense mech­a­nisms use­less.

Haroon Meer from Sense­post Infor­ma­tion Secu­rity promises to demon­strate the net­work ownage using Ajax, SOAP, XSRF, XSRT, XML — new attack vec­tors and tools in web appli­ca­tion secu­rity.

These are just the excerpts from the topic con­tent of this year’s HITB Secu­rity Con­fer­ence, but there will be more. Com­plete list of speak­ers can be found on HITB web­site. Spare your time and go there. It is really worth. And we’ll be there too (our speech topic is über-​secret by now).
