Hackers think differently, have strange goals, and will relentlessly "test" your software for security bugs. Hugh Thompson exposes how attackers view software to find security weaknesses and explains the economics of software risk for organizations. He vividly illustrates the laws of hackernomics with real vulnerabilities and helps you think like an attacker. Hugh takes you through crafting input like an attacker would. He describes the features that attackers find most attractive and why. Learn from Hugh how to prioritize a security bug and how to explore the security implications of a functional bug. Gain a better understanding of where the biggest risks in your software might be hiding and be better armed to test for those weaknesses. Warning-there will be live exploits. Software will be harmed during this presentation!
