Earlier this month, 27 members of the Ibuildings team attended the PHPNW11 conference in Manchester. We will publish two personal reviews of the event by two of our software engineers - here's the first one.
Beware of the dark side, Luke!
For the morning of the tutorial day at PHPNW11, I decided to attend "Beware of the dark side, Luke!", a security tutorial by Arne Blankerts. While web developers tend to give more emphasis to the security issues directly related with their application (such as XSS, CSRF, SQL injection or Session security), Arne's tutorial was very interesting because it focused also on direct machine access, remote OS access, installed software exploiting, and hardware exploits.
