[PLUG] [plug-announce] PLUG West, Mon, Feb 15, 2010 - Securing PostgreSQL from External Attack(7pm @ FIS in Malvern)

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites
you to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, February 15 at FIS in Malvern,
PA, from 7-9 pm.  See below for directions to the meeting location.

This month, PLUG West welcomes Bruce Momjian, who will be giving a
presentation on securing PostgreSQL.  This talk explores the ways
attackers with no authorized database access can steal Postgres
passwords, see database queries and results, and even intercept database
sessions and return false data. Postgres supports features to eliminate
all of these threats, but administrators must understand the attack
vulnerabilities to protect against them. This talk covers all known
Postgres external attack methods.
