Threats and Threat Modelling - MAQSoftware, Mumbai

Yesterday I did a small 60 minutes session on Threats and Thread Modelling at MAQSoftware. I spoke on three points:

1. SQL Injections
2. XSS Attacks
3. Session Hijacking

SQL injection included the ways in which a programmer makes common mistakes, by not hashing or encrypting a password, and how a hacker would take advantage of this and make SQL Injected attacks. These attacks are basically attacks which are done over a database.

XSS included how a 'script' tag is used to spoof the user to store his cookies over an attackers machines. Also tried and explained how would a Hacker hijack a session with the help of stored cookies.

Overall was a nice expericnce. And for the first time ever, I just did demos - no presentation at all.

The session unveiled few but important loop holes for hacking a system. Overall, a great experience.
