Bored with ColdFusion security presentations that rehash the OWASP Top Ten? Do this and don't do that with terse snippets of code…
This session was different. David demonstrated the tools that are available to hackers and shows how a web application is attacked live during the webinar. Using the OWASP Top Ten as a guide, he will attack a demo site using a combination of vulnerabilities to an application. Given the recent ColdFusion security issues, this session was a must-attend for any serious ColdFusion developers, administrations, and managers.
- Events in ColdFusion security and hacking
- Overview of OWASP 2013 Top Ten
- Shown how attacks are never a single issue, but combination of vulnerabilities
- See authentication bypass in action
