It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.

Have you ever had a bug nagging you for half a year? Have you ever been relieved after half a year of on and off debugging when you finally solved a bug? Did you ever reflect on why it took you so long to solve a bug?

In this presentation speakers will reveal how they solved their worst bug. You will experience old and new technical details that you've never heard about. You will get inspired to learn more.

Track: Security - common pitfalls / Time: Tuesday 14:05 - 15:05 / Location: Room 202

Money and businesses are becoming increasingly more digital and accessible on the Internet. The criminals follow the money and the users, which makes web security an important subject to address. This talk is about web application security and introduces a number of important up-to-date security vulnerabilities every programmer should address. Live examples are given using real-life and fabricated attacks to demonstrate what the worst case could be if criminals attack an unsecure site.
Techniques to discover various vulnerabilities will be demonstrated using standard tools, such as developer tools for browsers and proxies. Finally, the talk will provide an overview of how to prevent the vulnerabilities covered.
