As HTML5 adoption ramps up, developers need to be mindful that the power of the tools in the HTML5 feature-set can be abused to great effect, Shreeraj Shah, founder and director of Blueinfy Solutions, warned at the show. His presentation detailed the top 10 HTML5 vulnerabilities, which were lumped into three main categories: XHR and tag vulnerabilities, thick feature vulnerabilities, and DOM vulnerabilities.

His talk on HTML5 was among several at Black Hat. Others included a discussion on ways to abuse HTML5 WebSockets and the demonstration of a technique that can be used against HTML5 browsers to deliver malicious firmware that could be used for mass router infections.
