Links to the Demo Vulnerabilities Investigated in the Lab:
Bonus: the first twenty attendees are entered in a free raffle for OWASP swag!!!
In this hands-on lab we will go over tools and techniques for application security testing that will help testers and developers find issues and exploit them. You will be guided through the lab using a pre-configured workstation as an "attacker" and targeting a vulnerable website (e.g. Wordpress with known vulnerable plugins). We will also discuss techniques to improve your bug hunting besides the usual "vulnerable web app" approach.
Please join us in the Network Security Lab, UW1-321, on April 10th from 4pm to 5:30pm. Presented by OWASP and the Gray Hats team.
