Hello Bug Traq Readers, here are some updates on upcoming Black Hat
briefings as well as ways to get involved.
BLACK HAT FREE WEBINAR Nov 20th
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

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

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.
