About this talk

Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) has been around for a long time but has only recently gained attention. CSRF continues to be an issue that is misunderstood, mishandled, and improperly ranked. Many still do not realize the depth of the problem that CSRF poses. After all, this vulnerability can be either completely devastating or totally innocuous. CSRF is not just a problem for Internet facing web applications. These attacks can be used on local networks and even the localhost. This presentation covers some of the more interesting aspects of CSRF. Attacks, risk assessment, and mitigation will all be covered.
