Social Network For Security Executives: Help Make Right Cyber Security Decisions
The year in Flash
Adobe Flash continues to be a popular target for attackers in the wild. As an increasing number of bug fixes and mitigations are implemented, increasingly complex vulnerabilities and exploits are coming to light. This talk describes notable vulnerabilities and exploits that have been discovered in Flash in the past year.
It will start with an overview of the attack surface of Flash, and then discuss how the most common types of vulnerabilities work. It will then go through the year with regards to bugs, exploits and mitigations. It will end with a discussion of the future of Flash attacks: likely areas for new bugs, and the impact of existing mitigations.
