This presentation will discuss why this is the case. Today, phishing is a key component in a “hackers” repertoire.

The result - hijacked online brokerage accounts, stolen identities and e-bank robberies. During this talk, I will present the techniques used by attackers to execute such spear phishing attacks, and real-world cases that I have responded to that will provide perspective on the impact.

'''''Description: A while back I wanted to start covering more web application pen-testing tools and concepts in some of my videos and live classes.

I like the WebGoat project, but sometimes it's a little hard to figure out exactly what they want you to do to exploit a given web application, and it's written in J2EE (not a layman friendly language).  In an attempt to have something simple to use as a demo in my videos and in class, I started the Mutillidae project. Mutillidae is a deliberately vulnerable set of PHP scripts meant to illustrate the OWASP Top 10. This talk will cover installing Mutillidae in a test environment, and how to use it to illustrate the OWASP Top 10 web vulnerabilities in easy to understand terms.'''''
