Talk 1: StrangerDanger: Finding Security Vulnerabilities Before They Find You - Liliana Kastilio

Open source modules on the NPM ecosystem are undoubtedly awesome. However, they also represent an undeniable and massive risk. You’re introducing someone else’s code into your system, often with little or no scrutiny. The wrong package can introduce severe vulnerabilities into your application, exposing your application and your user's data. This talk will use a sample application, Goof, which uses various vulnerable dependencies, which we will exploit as an attacker would. For each issue, we'll explain why it happened, show its impact, and – most importantly – see how to avoid or fix it.

About Liliana: Team Lead at Snyk, working on extending our current languages support as well as adding support for new languages and package managers.
Learning lots of interesting things about how dependency resolution works and understanding developer workflows. In my spare time I enjoy mentoring others by running coding meetups to teach JavaScript, Python & Django and building open source projects together.
