Anatomy Of A WordPress Hack – Brennen Byrne

This WordCamp presentation by Brennen Byrne is a great introduction to common hacks such as XSS, SQL injection, and Clickjacking.

The biggest takewaway for me was that security exploits are usually found in the small details.

For example, the XSS vulnerability that Brennen discussed was caused because a single tag out of 5 or 6 was not escaped.
