LASCON is an OWASP conference held annually in Austin, TX and features a gathering thought leaders, web developers, security engineers, mobile developers and information security professionals.  In his presentation, "Revenge of the Geeks, Hacking Fantasy Football Sites," Kuykendall will walk attendees through the anatomy of a hack against popular fantasy football and baseball mobile applications showing every "sneak play" required to control the application and win the Big Game. The tools and techniques used in this hack can be applied against any mobile application as these applications leverage rich new formats like JSON and REST to deliver a rich user experience found in today's mobile applications, and not surprisingly, are exposing the same familiar vulnerabilities like SQL and command injection.

Kuykendall will go on to explain how mistakes with the application's session management can allow would-be hackers to break down the nested communication formats and inject targeted payloads to manipulate team lineups. He will also share how hackers could also post false comments on the message board from the victim's account. 

After Kuykendall takes attendees through the hack, he will abstract these techniques, tie them directly to best practices, and apply them to other mobile applications so participants will walk away with specific tools and techniques to better understand mobile back-end hacking.

LASCON will take place October 22-25 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Norris Conference Center in Austin, TX. The full agenda can be found at: http://lascon2013.sched.org.
