#IICSG2018 Training — Bug Hunting Millionaire: Mastering Web Attacks with Full-Stack Exploitation

by Dawid Czagan, Silesia Security Lab

HackerOne bug hunters have earned $20 million in bug bounties until 2017 and they are expected to earn $100 million by the end of 2020. Some of HackerOne customers include the United States Department of Defense, General Motors, Uber, Twitter and Yahoo. It clearly shows where the challenges and opportunities are for you in the upcoming years. What you need is a solid technical training by one of the Top 10 HackerOne bug hunters. 

Modern web applications are complex and it's all about full-stack nowadays. That's why you need to dive into full-stack exploitation if you want to master web attacks and maximise your payouts. Say 'No' to classical web application hacking. Join this unique hands-on training and become a full-stack exploitation master.

Date: 22-23 May 2018

Cost: $3,500 SGD

After Completing This Training, You Will Have Learned About 

  • REST API hacking

  • AngularJS-based application hacking

  • DOM-based exploitation

  • bypassing Content Security Policy

  • server-side request forgery

  • browser-dependent exploitation

  • DB truncation attack

  • NoSQL injection

  • type confusion vulnerability

  • exploiting race conditions

  • path-relative stylesheet import vulnerability 

  • reflected file download vulnerability

  • subdomain takeover 

  • and more ... 

What Students Will Receive

Students will be handed a VMware image with a specially prepared testing environment to play with the bugs. What's more, this environment is self-contained and when the training is over, students can take it home (after signing a non-disclosure agreement) to hack at their own pace. 

What Students Should Know

To get the most of this training, intermediate knowledge of web application security is needed. Students should be familiar with common web application vulnerabilities and have experience in using a proxy, such as Burp Suite Proxy, or similar, to analyse or modify the traffic. 

What Students Should Bring

Students will need a laptop with a 64-bit operating system, at least 4GB RAM (8GB preferred), 35Gb free hard drive space, USB port (2.0 or 3.0), wireless network adapter, administrative access, ability to turn off antivirus/firewall, and VMware Player/Fusion installed (64-bit version). Prior to the training, make sure there are no problems with running 64-bit VMs (BIOS settings changes may be needed). Please also make sure that you have Internet Explorer 11 installed on your machine or bring an up-and-running VM with Internet Explorer 11 (you can get it here).
