Summary : Looking for instant gratification from
the latest client side attack? Your search may be over when you see the
data that can be harvested from popular web browser caches. This
discussion will focus on what web application programmers are NOT doing
to prevent data like credit card and social security numbers from being
cached. It will explore what popular websites are not disabling these
features and what tools an attacker can use to gather this information
from a compromised machine. A general overview of web browser caching
will be included and countermeasures from both the client and server
side.
