	Canberra Linux Users Group Meeting - 22nd August 2013

Date:		22nd August 2013 (Fourth Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Richard Lemon

Abstract:	Richard will be speaking about security problems for
		software developers. 
		Programming is an exercise in problem solving. We work
		out what the root cause of the problem is, and we find a
		way to program around it. Sometimes, that involves
		fixing some of the parts of our system, so that we can
		keep on developing. 
		And sometimes those "fixes" leave our systems vulnerable
		to attack. Worse, sometimes the underlying assumptions
		of what the problem is make us open up our systems and
		make their security weaker. 
		In this engaging talk, Richard will be demonstrating
		some of the problems developers can inadvertently cause
		when not paying close enough attention to the overall
		security of the system they're working with. 

Venue:		Room N101
		Computer Science and Information Technology Building
