Open Source Databases

50 minutes conference


Operations, Developer

In this talk, we take a look at the whole stack and I don't just mean LAMP,
we'll cover what an attack surface is and some areas you may look to ensure
that you can reduce it.

What's an attack surface?

Emerging technologies to keep an eye on or even implement yourself to help
improve your security posture.

A live compromise demo (or backup video if something fails) which covers

and ultimately exploit multiple failures to gain bash shell access over the
MySQL protocol.
