We all know that Ruby is a great prototyping language. It's easy to pick up and quick to turn out proof of concept code. This facet of the language makes it ideal for turning out exploit code - programs designed to take advantage of security vulnerabilities.
This talk explores the infosec culture that has grown up and around Ruby and how it is reflected in the language. There will be plenty of live demos of weaponized Ruby, and participants will learn how to build up their own arsenal of Ruby-based attack software.
