Details

We're going to do another round of virtual presentation and interactive hands-on lab covering common web application vulnerabilities and how to guard against them.

Similar to the last event (https://www.meetup.com/White-Hat-Academy/events/243123056/), this time we'll walk through a more in-depth example covering how to identify, exploit and guard against stored XSS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting#Persistent), CSRF (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Cross-Site_Request_Forgery_(CSRF)), and directory traversal (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Path_Traversal).

Participants will then get a chance to rewrite sample code to harden their apps from attack and test whether their fixes are successful.

To get the most out of this session, you should already have some basic experience with an object-oriented programming language like Python.

This event will be run completely online; join our Slack group (https://whitehatacademy.herokuapp.com) to ask questions and interact during the presentation, and watch the action at the YouTube livestream.
