Learning about cyber security is more than just listening and following- it is about creating something new. To that end, I have been working with a number of talented students here at Towson University on a number of different research projects, and the results of the first of these is now posted for your perusal.
The paper is written by Ogbeide Derrick Oigiagbe and Rayvorn Patterson. They took a look at the recently released Java 7 Applet Remote Code Execution vulnerability, and asked the question: What sorts of artifacts are left on the system or on the network from such an attack?
Special thanks needs to go to Jess and Mildred Fisher, whose generosity let us support these students as they worked on this project.
