Game of Hacks: Play, Hack and Track

We created “Game of Hacks”– a viral web app marketed as a tool to train developers on secure coding – with the intention of building a honeypot. Game of Hacks, built using the node.js framework, displays a range of vulnerable code snippets challenging the player to locate the vulnerability. Within 24 hours we had 35K players test their hacking skills...we weren't surprised when users started breaking the rules. Join us to: • Play GoH against the audience in real time and get your claim for fame. • Understand how vulnerabilities were planted within Game of Hacks. • See real attack techniques (some caught us off guard) and how we handled them. • Learn how to avoid vulnerabilities in your code and how to go about designing a secure application. • Hear what to watch out for on the ultra-popular node.js framework.
