Kiwicon 5 - X-Excess

Mike Haworth and Kirk Jackson presented a talk at Kiwicon 5 titled "X-Excess":
Mobile applications are the new hotness and it seems everyone wants to build one. Unfortunately you have to build new app for each platform, so frameworks are popping up to bridge that gap. We look at some abuses of one framework and the implication for your shiny new gadget. Surely we can't bug a phone using XSS? Seems also there is a little known crowd out of Washington that have been swept up in the enthusiasm of exposing JavaScript APIs so now the same issues apply to your desktop too.
