Running Away from Security: Web App Vulnerabilities and OSINT Collide

  • Micah Hoffman
  • Thursday, December 1st, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Lately it seems like more and more of our lives are being sucked into the computer world. There are wrist-sensors for tracking our steps, phone apps that plot our workouts on maps, and sites to share our healthy-eating and weight loss progress. When people sign up for these sites, they usually use pseudonyms or the sites give them a unique numbered ID to keep their information "private."

How hard would it be to connect a person's step-counting, diet history, and other info on these health sites to their real lives? Are businesses using these sites for non-fitness purposes?

This talk will show weaknesses in several web applications used for health and exercise tracking and reveal [spoiler alert] how trivial it is to find the real people behind the "private" accounts.
