Join us for a How to (FLOSS)Hack tutorial, which will introduce several common classes of web application vulnerabilities such as XSS, SQL injection, and XML External Entities flaws. The goal of the session is to bring novice FLOSSHack participants up to speed on how to identify new vulnerabilities that are likely to appear in the target software for this week’s FLOSSHack. FLOSSHack is an experimental workshop project designed to bring together those who want to learn more about “hacking” (secure programming and application penetration testing) with those who are in need of low cost or pro bono security auditing.
NOTE: For best results, please bring a laptop to participate in the hands-on exercises.
