Session 1: How Hackers Hack ... and How to Stop Them
Your website is under attack. Constantly. But do you know how it is being attacked? More and more attackers today are attacking applications ... code issues in your web site ... rather than infrastructure issues. They are coming after you and your code. Come learn about some of the most common methods hackers use today to attack your web applications and the exploits these attacks target. Some of the exploits we’ll cover include insecure communications, cross-site scripting, injection flaws, cross-site request forgery, malicious file execution, and broken authentication and session management, just to name a few. This session will provide you with an understanding of the hacker’s tactics and the methods you can take to defend your applications with Visual Studio and the .NET Framework.
