DIVD researcher Jelle (aka SchizoDuckie) has a hobby. He likes to find credentials in places where they don't belong, like GitHub and Postman. And this hobby has gotten him into many places he should not have, like the Dutch Tax office and many larger company.

While Jelle is enjoying his vacation his DIVD colleagues, Chris van 't Hof, Célistine Oosting and Frank Breedijk, will present the story of one of the more significant vulnerabilities discovered by DIVD this year.
