Hello everyone,

Apologies for the short notice.  Next Tuesday is the first Philly OWASP
meeting of the year.

I will be talking about secure PHP deployment patterns (some of which is
applicable to Ruby and Rails apps) and Aaron Mulder will be discussing
and demonstrating Cross Site Printing, which should be lots of fun.

Please RSVP to darian@criticode.com if you plan on attending.

Thanks, and stay warm and dry,


p.s. Is there a PhillyOnRails meeting happening this month?  I saw
Colin's note about organizing one, but haven't seen anything about it
since then.

- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Philadelphia-area application security consultant and Philly OWASP
Chapter Leader Darian Anthony Patrick will present secure PHP
deployment patterns in shared hosting and application-dedicated
deployment environments.

PHP has become one of the most frequently noted development platforms
of vulnerable web applications.  This talk will describe best
practices for separation of PHP applications to minimize effect of a
successful penetration, and the hardening and isolation of PHP itself
to mitigate the effect of successful exploitation of problems in the
language implementation.

Philadelphia-area security researcher and Philly OWASP Chapter Leader
Aaron Weaver will be discussing Cross Site Printing[1], a notable
variation on intranet application exploitation.

Aaron's research has well received by the web security industry, with
coverage by Robert Hansen aka RSnake[2] of SecTheory and ha.ckers.org,
Jeremiah Grossman of White Hat Security[3] and has been named number 4
of the Top Ten Web Hacks of 2007[4] in informal polling conducted by
Jeremiah, and is noted as one of the Coolest Hacks of 2007 by Dark
Reading[5].  You don't want to miss this exciting presentation!
