Web Application Security Introduction

Björn Kimminich's Blog

This is the minified introduction talk to Web Application Security derived from my Training Workshop slides (https://de.slideshare.net/BjrnKimminich/web-application-security-21684264) – It gives a short motivation why Web Application Security is a high priority today and then goes through three of the most prominent vulnerabilities of web apps: 
– SQL Injection 
– Cross Site Scripting (XSS) 
– Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) 
It will be explained how each of these technically work, what damage they can cause and how to avoid them in your own applications. The talk concludes with a summary of existing measures to increase application security and explains why none of these is a 100% solution. To keep you on the topic for a while after the talk, a « hacking homework » is presented where a vulnerable local web shop is supposed to be hacked in various ways. 

For a full-grown coverage of the topic feel free to check out my…

Carlos German Cruz


Well, this is my first post… Today, I am trying to install a SSL certificate in the domain name http://www.nicaraguaspanishschools.org

OWASP TOP 10: Beginning the Battle.

Security Perspective

Welcome to OWASP TOP 10 Series. In this section we will see what all are the OWASP TOP 10 risks, how they impact on web application , how they are exploited and what all are the preventive and corrective measures to be implemented.

If you don’t know OWASP TOP 10 (Open Web Application Security Project) then this is the place to start and if you know it already you must thinking why in the world you’d visiting my site when the official http://www.owasp.org has everything to offer? Answer is simple. For ease in understanding and detailed and example oriented posts.

Although the official site makes it pretty easy, when I’m thinking from a developer’s perspective I always wished if I could get all the relevant articles under one post ranging from the risk explanation, risk exploitation techniques (funny they call it testing procedures), preventive actions and correction steps.

I’d be…

Crypto Currently: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Potcoin prices for July 25

The Cryptosphere

Yes. Yes, my friends, it has come to this.


If there’s one thing my IRL friends know about me, it’s that I cannot abide the reek of the weed, so just imagine the depths to which I have sunk in order to blog for you the current price of, yes, potcoin, which aims to be the standardized currency of the marijuana industry. You see the issue with that, yes?


Bitcoin: $593.00 Ugh, down seriously from yesterday, probably on the basis of bad news at MtGox. When in doubt, blame MtGox.

Litecoin: $7.72 also down significantly. What’s up with that?

Dogecoin: $0.00021634 and actually doing the best of the three this week.

Potcoin: $0.00001283 and as expected, the price varies with the cost of Ketchup Doritos in the back alley.
