An introduction to web application security flaws

You hear the names of the most common web security problems frequently: cross-site scripting, SQL injection, cross-site request forgery, but what do those terms mean? This presentation will provide an introduction to those vulnerabilities along with examples and ways to avoid them. The presentation will be language agnostic as the problems can occur in any language used to develop web applications.

Developers of web applications sometimes get caught up in the excitement of developing the application and forget to consider the security implications. This presentation will help them get a handle on what to avoid so that the excitement doesn't get squashed by an attacker. Others who are curious about the kinds of attacks made against web applications will also find much of interest.
