Web Hacking Lab and Technical Discussion

We will be using DVWA (Damn Vulnerable Web Application) as a platform to learn the basics of Website attacks such as SQL Injection, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), and various other forms of basic vulnerabilities that can exist in insecure sites.

You will want to have a Virtual Machine with Metasploitable 2 installed, which you can download Here. If you don't know how to install it, you can refer to this page.

You will also need to have Kali Linux Installed as a VM as well. You can download it here, and follow this guide to install it.

This lab is suitable for Novice hackers. More advanced topics can be built upon the foundations that this lab sets forth.

    A really good lab! It was so simple to do, but this was something I never thought about doing. Being a programmer this really helped me in understanding how to create a more secure application

    I highly enjoyed lecturing and leading the sqli lab, and I believe that the members of the group got a lot from the lab.

    I thought I couldn't be schooled on the subject of sql injection, yet I was!

      No sir. No wireless this time. However, do be sure to read the meetup description in order to have the proper vm installed for this lab. This is going to be all about some of the most prominent and widely used website hacking techniques.
