From BruCON 2016
Hacking web applications – case studies of award-winning bugs in Google, Yahoo, Mozilla and more
Have you ever thought of hacking web applications for fun and profit? How about playing with authentic, award-winning security bugs identified in some of the greatest companies? If that sounds interesting, join this unique two-day hands-on training!
Dawid will discuss security bugs that he has found together with Michał Bentkowski in a number of bug bounty programs (including Google, Yahoo, Mozilla, Twitter and others). You will learn how bug hunters think and how to hunt for security bugs effectively.
To be successful in bug hunting, you need to go beyond automated scanners. If you are not afraid of going into detail and doing manual/semi-automated analysis, then this hands-on training is for you.
After completing this training, you will have learned about:
- tools/techniques for effective hacking of web applications
- non-standard XSS, SQLi, CSRF
- RCE via serialization/deserialization
- bypassing password verification
- remote cookie tampering
- tricky user impersonation
- serious information leaks
- browser/environment dependent attacks
- XXE attack
- insecure cookie processing
- session related vulnerabilities
- mixed content vulnerability
- SSL strip attack
- path traversal
- response splitting
- bypassing authorization
- file upload vulnerabilities
- caching problems
- clickjacking attacks
- logical flaws
- and more…
This hands-on training was attended by security specialists from Oracle, Adobe, ESET, ING, Red Hat, Trend Micro, Philips, government sector and it was very well-received. Recommendations can be found here
Students will be handed in a VMware image with a specially prepared testing environment to play with the bugs. What's more, this environment is self-contained and when the training is over, students can take it home (after signing a non-disclosure agreement) to hack again at their own pace.
Pentesters, bug hunters, security researchers/consultants
To get the most of this training basic knowledge of web application security is needed. Students should have some experience in using a proxy, such as Burp, or similar, to analyze or modify the traffic.
Students will need a laptop with 64-bit operating system, at least 4 GB RAM (8 GB preferred), 35 GB free hard drive space, USB port (2.0 or 3.0), wireless network adapter, administrative access, ability to turn off AV/firewall and VMware Player installed (64-bit version). Prior to the training, make sure there are no problems with booting 64-bit VMs (BIOS settings changes may be needed)
