Presentation Title: Client-side Security
Presentation Details:

Client-side software generally refers to a class of computer programs that are executed on the client, by the user’s supporting environment, instead of the server. Both, clients and servers are in constant interaction. In a Web environment, the client is represented by the user’s web browser, while the server is the remote computer, which serves dynamic content. In a much broader context, the client-server relationship can be represented by a network client connected to a WiFi network.

This paper describes numerous techniques for attacking Clients-side technologies. The content of the paper is based on the research that has been conducted over the past year by the GNUCITIZEN Information Security Think Tank. The presentation will cover the details of this year QuickTime vulnerability affecting Windows Vista and XP.
