Overview: The OWASP Avoiding Hacker Tricks training course will teach students about avoiding hacker tricks. Writing secure applications in today’s environment means we need to take our coding skills and approach up to a whole new level. Hackers are finding new ways to exploit us in ways that we used to think were safe. In this course we look at building secure applications from the mindset of the hacker, and what a developer can do to avoid the front pages of the latest exploit. We go thru secure coding principles and tools you can use to uncover attack vectors, look at patterns for reducing our risk, and explore some top exploits that hackers use to steal our data.
