Here’s a story: you have built the ultimate AppSec program for your organization, and you complete the vital step of scanning your code for vulnerabilities along the development process. Your policy was very clear and strict about high priority vulnerabilities while lower vulnerabilities are addressed when time permits. Having achieved a significant coverage, you’re left with only three medium-severity vulnerabilities. You are about to sign off on the release; what could go wrong?

Watch as a downloaded app is attacked through a live demo, and learn the real dangers of three of the most commonly found (and ignored) medium level vulnerabilities.

Join this session to

• Watch how, when leveraged properly, medium level vulnerabilities become serious attacks

• Understand why static source code analysis is vital to locate vulnerabilities that your pen tests are likely to miss

• Learn how to use static application security testing as an attack technique
