Hacking By Numbers: W^3 Edition

Reading time Less than a minute

Well, we’re ramping up with the new Hacking By Numbers W^3 edition course we will be presenting at BlackHat Vegas this year.  This course is a replacement for the Web2.0 course we successfully presented over the past three years and sports a whole bunch of new and improved practicals.  We’ve also upped the technology being used and the presentation is chock-full of ASCII sheep… :)

The new course is an intermediate web application hacking course, and will deal with the following topics

  • Hacking traditional web applications.
  • Web2.0 concepts and technologies
  • Xs* – JavaScript attacks
  • Web services
  • Compiled applications
  • HTML5

The course is highly practical and hands on.  To paraphrase the Combat course’s tag-line, it’s some talk – and a lot of hack. :)

I’ll be presenting the course again this year, and I’m looking forward to the training and the briefings.  Hope to see you all there.
