WeTest Hands-On Session - "Little Hackme Thing"

  • Mar 26, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Lateral Security will present their game "Little Hackme Thing", developed by Niresh Singh and Nick Breese. This will be a pure-play web application hacking game to let you identify and exploit basic injection vulnerabilities that are still commonly found in the wild. Have a play and understand some basic, yet powerful, attacks against web applications. A short introductory presentation will provide some background on Lateral Security followed by an overview of the classes of vulnerabilities you will exploit.

For this session, we will be focusing on: 

* SQL injection, with a view of retrieving information from database tables that you would otherwise not have access to. 

* LDAP injection to break authentication mechanisms.

What you will require: 

* A laptop with Wifi enabled 

* Firefox browser (should work on any browser, but we will be testing our game using Firefox)

Our game will be completely browser-based and will not require any special tools. The game will be providing lots of information and is focused on fun and education. Lots of help will be provided within the game and from our two consultants.

Will there be food and drink?

Yes. This workshop is free of charge thanks to sponsorship from Assurity and includes pizza, beer and non-alcoholic beverages.

What time does it finish?

Doors open from 5.15pm. The first session runs 5.45pm - 6.45pm, then a 15 minute break for pizza, followed by a second session from 7pm - 8pm.

How do I attend?

RSVP for the event. Numbers are limited to the first 20 participants, but if you're keen please add yourself to the waiting list. We often get a big waiting list that disappears closer to the time, as attendees drop out due to schedule conflicts or illness. Testers of all experience levels welcome.

      If it ruins the desktop firefox it will be fine from what I understand.

      Operating system doesn't matter, no. Just requires firefox as far as I'm aware

    We may have an option to increase the number of attendees at this workshop. If you're interested, please sign up for the waiting list. We'll make a decision closer to the time about how we'll use the workshop space based on the level of interest. Thanks.

      I've increased capacity for this workshop to 28 Testers. If you cannot bring the required hardware I have marked you as 'cannot attend'. Being able to bring your own laptop is essential.
