Watch How The Giants Fall: Learning from Bug Bounty Results

Presented by: John Melton
Time: Friday, Jan. 10, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Security is hard. We all miss things. Attackers find things.

"You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself." -Samuel Levenson

This talk is a fun, fast-moving survey of some of the best recent bug bounty finds against some of the largest and best-known applications in the world. Some of the bugs are really simple, some are super complex, but all are entertaining. As we go through these, we'll take a look at what caused the issue, and how to fix it.

From this talk, you'll walk away with:
* a few minutes of entertainment
* a view of the wide breadth of security issues
* practical ideas on testing and shoring up security in your own applications
* (maybe) a new side gig as a bug bounty hunter!
