This might be of interest to those on this mailing list. It is being
held at engineers Ireland in Dublin near the American Embassy

About the speaker:  Joe Fitzpatrick - Program Director, IBM Software Group

About the event:  Wargames light is an entertaining 'game' style
event.  The primary focus is to demonstrate common but complex attacks
carried out against unsuspecting web applications in the real world.
Players will get a feel for the types of techniques employed by
hackers and through this newly acquired understanding will be able to
protect their own applications as a result.  At the end of the session
players that have taken part should be able to attack simple shopping
cart applications, neutralise poorly implemented encryption, play with
stored xss, perform cross site request forgery as well as many more
complex scenarios.  Obviously the idea here is not to leave the
session a hacker, instead to leave with the skill/mindset of a basic
White Hat Hacker.
