Writing Secure JavaScript on Lanyrd

Presented by Josh Emerson.  

@ 68 Middle St Brighton, BN1 Map of 68 Middle St

Some of the very things that make JavaScript awesome can also expose it to security risks. This talk will go through some sample security flaws unique to Node’s async nature and surrounding ecosystem (or especially relevant to it) and will show how these could occur in your own code or in npm dependencies.

The talk will revolve around a sample vulnerable application, Goof, which I will exploit as an attacker would. For each issue, I'll explain why it happened, show its impact, and – most importantly – see how to avoid or fix it
