We all look at example code online to help us solve challenges we’re facing when writing code. However, this code is often rife with security concerns. Online blogs, examples from StackOverflow, and even example code from Microsoft – if implemented on your site – can leave you open to attacks. In this session, we will cover just a few of the issues commonly found online and what you should do instead.

You will learn:

  • About defensive coding and how to spot lack of defensive coding in examples found online
  • About layered security and how layered security is often ignored in coding examples online
  • Where and how to scrutinize auto-generated code in Visual Studio
