Abstract: Since all organizations have web presence today, security of the web
applications is important. There is a variety of attacks (Cross Site
Scripting (XSS), SQL injection, Command Injections, Forced Browsing etc.)
that can be launched against web applications which we need to be aware of.
In this talk, I will cover Cross Site Scripting. I will also cover a
slightly advanced version of XSS, tools you could use to learn more about
XSS, tools that you can use to test your web applications for
vulnerabilities. I will also briefly talk about PHPIDS, an IDS written in
PHP that helps prevent some of these attacks. Later in the talk, I will
cover few interesting hacking techniques that have been newly discovered.
