Magecart & Beyond. Massive Client-Side Website Vulnerability

20 Nov 2019, 11:25 - 11:45

Innovation Stage

Technology Showcase Session

This session will discuss how modern website architecture has presented an expansive and lucrative attack surface for hackers. Incidence rates of vulnerability will be detailed resulting from a study of the Alex-1000 global websites. There will also be discussion on the browser-native, standards-based security controls that are available to safeguard against these attacks including CSP, SRI, HSTS and others.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how modern website architectures has lead to the acceleration of attacks with names such as Cross-Site Scripting, Formjacking, Magecart, Ad Injections, Content Injections, Cyptojacking and Website Supply Chain Attacks.As many as 5000 websites are successfully attacked each month leveraging a nearly universal client-side website vulnerability
  • Data and statistics from a study of the global Alexa-1000 websites will be presented to highlight the the widespread incidence of vulnerability and the current lack of deployed security capable of safeguarding against attacks.
  • Learn about the application of standards-based security solutions like CSP, SRI and others can be used to prevent these attack. 
  • Learn about the application of automation to overcome the administrative and operational hurdles commonly associated with the deployment of CSP, SRI, etc.
