ISN Readers of new and old, here are some updates on upcoming Black Hat
briefings as well as ways to get involved.


Black Hat Webcast #5 is scheduled for Thursday, November 20 at 1pm PST. 
The topic this time is Clickjacking, and our featured guest is Jeremiah 
Grossman, the co-discoverer of the widely publicized vulnerability.  
For the uninitiated, it's a set of techniques discovered by Jeremiah 
Grossman and Robert Hansen that allows an attacker to transparently 
capture a user's clicks, forcing the user to do all manner of unpleasant 
things ranging from adjusting security settings to unwittingly visiting 
websites with malicious code.

The vectors for this attack include all the major browsers and Flash. In 
co-operation with Adobe, the discoverers delayed public discussion to 
allow a patch to be created. In the intervening time, other researchers 
have made partial disclosures, but this is your chance to join 
co-discoverer Jeremiah Grossman for a Black Hat webcast that deals with 
the attack from all sides. Bring your questions - we'll have a Q&A 
session after the presentation.

Black Hat Japan is in the books and we're already looking forward to the 
Washington DC and Europe events. If you missed Black Hat Tokyo, we have 
put all the material on-line for download, and are in the process of 
getting the audio files tagged and on-line as well: 

Held February 16-19, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. Black Hat 
DC is the leading security conference focused on the needs of government 
and infrastructure security professionals, with tracks focused on

Wars and Application Security, and Forensics and Network Protection. We 
hope to see you there for another highly technical and refreshingly 
vendor-neutral event.
