GitHub Security Virtual Meetup

MeetupVirtual (CET Timezone)

The GitHub Security meetup is a great opportunity to connect with other security researchers and developers to discuss all things security! Offense, defense, variant analysis, vulnerability impact, and security triage workflows ... we welcome it all!

The meetup features:

  • Lightning Talks. A mix of live and pre-recorded lightning talks. You can interact with the speaker in the chat after or during the talk!
  • Security Trivia. Have fun playing our security trivia game with the other participants and win some GitHub Swag!


  • A short history of package dependency compromises and what we can learn from them by Hauke Jan Lübbers. Hauke is a Software Engineering Manager at CSIS Security Group, lying awake at night thinking about all the software packages everyone depends on

  • Best Way to RCE: Command Injection by Mehmet Ince. Mehmet Ince continues his duty as the Managing Partner of INVICTUS. Ince is known to be involved in the field of cybersecurity since 2004. Some of his findings are available on exploit-db as well as Ince’s blog, where he shares his ideas about current security issues and offers his contributions to the global security community.

Join us on Wednesday July 15, 2020, at 5pm CET (Central Europe) - 8am PDT (Pacific Time) on https://www.twitch.tv/github
