Presentation Title: For My Next Trick… Client-Side Hacking
Client-side software generally refers to a class of computer programs that are executed on the client, by the user’s supporting environment, instead of the server. Both, clients and servers are in constant interaction. In a Web environment, the client is represented by the user’s web browser, while the server is the remote computer which serves dynamic content. In a much broader context, the client-server relationships can be represented by a network client connected to a WiFi network.
This paper describes numerous techniques for attacking Clients-side technologies. The content of the paper is based the research that has been conducted over the past year by the GNUCITIZEN Ethical Hacker Outfit.
