Web security is a dynamic topic that requires constant attention, but the juice is worth the squeeze.  The main stream media is reporting password breaches of websites on a weekly basis.  The vast majority of web vulnerabilities can be generalized into about ten different types or categories.  We will cover these different types of vulnerabilities; what they mean, how they work and how you can test your websites to see if they are vulnerable.


What are the top vulnerability types?

Web vulnerabilities involving Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) is currently the number one problem, followed by Information Leakage, Content Spoofing, Insufficient Authorization, SQL Injection, and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaws.


Does this meetup need any volunteers?

We are currently looking for co-presenters with experience in the subject, as well as volunteers to help with various aspects of the meeting (ie. videotaping the presentation).  The meetup will be presented by Chris Baril, who holds a Computer Science B.S. degree from the University of British Columbia and has been developing websites since the late 90s.  For more information visit


Who should attend?

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Front-end and back-end developers

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Intermediate/Advanced
