Mon, 2010-02-22 20:00 - 22:00

Abstract: Web Applications are the most common vector for computer intrusion. They are used to host malware, infect users, steal money, steal identities or worse. Why are web applications a primed target? Most web applications have at least one critical bug. How do you know if your web applications have vulnerabilities hiding within them? Learn the methodologies and methods of successful penetration testing. If you don't test your applications someone else likely will.
