OWASP Austin Chapter Monthly Meeting -- Tuesday, June 28th from 11:30 AM to
1:00 PM

*Game of Hacks: Play, Hack & Track*

Playing around with some ideas we found ourselves creating a hacker magnet.
Game of Hacks, built using the node.js framework, displays a range of
vulnerable code snippets challenging the player to locate the
vulnerability. A multiplayer option makes the challenge even more
attractive and the leaderboard spices up things when players compete for a
seat on the iron throne. Within 24 hours we had 35K players test their
hacking skills...we weren't surprised when users started breaking the
rules. Join us to:

   - Play GoH against the audience in real time and get your claim for fame
   - Understand how vulnerabilities were planted within Game of Hacks
   - See real attack techniques (some caught us off guard) and how we
   handled them
   - Learn how to avoid vulnerabilities in your code and how to go about
   designing a secure application
   - Hear what to watch out for on the ultra-popular node.js framework.
