Watch How The Giants Fall: Learning from Bug Bounty Results

Presented by: John Melton

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!
