<script>alert('XSS Attacks For Fun and Profit')</script>

If you handle user input in your web app you've likely had to deal with the prevention of XSS attacks. As part of this talk we'll go over recent attacks in the wild, get our hands dirty exploiting a sample web application, and learn about some best practices around prevention and damage control.
