From skid to less than skid: Fraq learns to hack webapps


(Full Snack Developer) #1

Okay, I’ve spent a while doing security but very little of it focused on web apps. Like, almost none. As a sys admin, I’m more concerned about hardening my OS and learning fun things like buffer overflows and interesting network attacks.

That said, I find myself in a position now where I need to learn a lot more about web apps and learn it fast. I’m going to assume I’m starting from the bottom here and will let you tag along as I explore this area.

There isn’t really any content for this post other than to let y’all know I’ll be talking like a noob for the next few weeks.

Are you going to focus on PHP, JS, what?

The app I’ll be working against is mostly JS

I’ll be looking forward to seeing how you progress as well as following you along in your journey!


Should we expect browser exploit demos later on?


Sounds good. I don’t know much about webapps so i hope to learn a thing or two as well here!

Really good idea, I’ll definitely keep reading your articles, thanks in advance.


Keen. Currently sitting in my first websec lecture.
