TOPIC
 
Web Application Hacking: How to Make and Break Security on the Web

Wesley Aptekar-Cassels

[geek:2]

This talk will explain common vulnerabilities in web applications, how web apps are hacked, and finally how to make sure that your web apps aren't vulnerable. It will cover most of Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)'s Top 10 Vulnerabilities from 2013, such as Cross Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and Directory Traversal. We'll also touch on the wider world of Application and OS hacking.

About the Speaker:
Wesley is a high school student who enjoys writing code and learning about computer security.

Elections:
Annual LUGOD officer election season begins. Nominations for officers will be accepted between October and November meetings.
