The Meetup site is down due to DDOS, so this is a reminder.
OWASP Boston March meeting - 3 training sessions - Akamai 6:30
One will be on SQL Injection - intro, detection, prevention, scanning
and false positives. This is the most serious web application vulnerability.
The second will be on OWASP WebGoat. WebGoat is a deliberately insecure
web application maintained by OWASP <http://www.owasp.org/> designed to
teach web application security lessons. You can install and practice with
WebGoat in either J2EE or in ASP.NET <http://asp.net/>. In each lesson,
users must demonstrate their understanding of a security issue by
exploiting a real vulnerability in the WebGoat applications. There are
hints and 39 different lesson plans on various vulnerabilities and
technologies. We won't cover all of them of course!
The third will be on Cross Site Request Forgery - not a hack really,
it's just the way the web works. But it causes apps to do legitimate things
that you didn't ask them to do.
Pizza and drinks provided by Akamai.
