Steve Poole Presents: The Anatomy of Java Vulnerabilities
When CJUG found out that Steve Poole will be stopping at the Windy City after Devnexus 2018 ( before heading back home in the UK, we wasted no time to lock him in for another talk with us! Abstract: This talk covers all aspects of Java Vulnerabilities. With the rise of cybercrime you must know how to defend your code. With examples & code this talk will help you be more effective in reducing security issues in Java. Description: Java is everywhere. According to Oracle it’s on 3 billion devices and counting. We also know that Java is one of the most popular vehicles for delivering malware. But that’s just the plugin right? Well maybe not. Java on the server can be just at risk as the client. In this talk we’ll cover all aspects of Java Vulnerabilities. We’ll explain why Java has this dubious reputation, what’s being done to address the issues and what you have to do to reduce your exposure. You’ll learn about Java vulnerabilities in general: how they are reported, managed and fixed as well as learning about the specifics of attack vectors and just what a ‘vulnerability’ actually is. With the continuing increase in cybercrime it’s time you knew how to defend your code. With examples and code this talk will help you become more effective in reducing security issues in Java.
