introduced by serverless computing. But what does serverless computing
entail when it comes to security? With no dedicated server, is the
security risk higher or lower? Can malware live inside the code? These
are critical questions every organization shifting to a serverless
environment should be asking.

BSideLV: (De) Serial Killers': Set during the Great Marshalling
of Pickles Apocalypse; in the year 2015, the internet at large was made
aware of a little-known kind of attack: Deserialization of Untrusted
Data. Jenkins, JBoss, Oracle WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, Apache Struts and
many more were destroyed by Remote Code Executions via complicated
deserialization attacks. Gadget Chains smashed through WAFs and rooted
systems. By the year 2017, OWASP declared deserialization attacks
critical enough for its own OWASP Top 10 category.
