Owning Bad Guys [And Mafia] With Javascript Botnets presented at DEF CON 20

by Chema Alonso, Manu the Sur,

Summary : Man in the middle attacks are still one of the
most powerful techniques for owning machines.
In this talk MITM schemas in anonymous services
are going to be discussed. Then attendees will
see how easily a botnet using javascript can be
created to analyze that kind of connections and
some of the actions people behind those services
are doing... in real. It promises to be funny.
