Want to know how hackers steal password databases and take over websites? Come to our technical workshop this Wednesday to get hands-on experience with web hacking. You will attack a website using cross-site scripting and SQL injection and then exploit the famous Heartbleed and Shellshock bugs to take control of the webserver.
