Michael Peters will be giving a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 described as:
     Security is important in any programming environment but programming
     for the web has some unique possibilities and hazards. Most web
     programmers have little to no training in security and lots of web
     development is done by people who don’t wear a full-time developer
     hat. Add to this the fact that bad security on a web project can have
     very public, very embarassing, and sometimes legal consequences.
     This talk will walk through the basics of web security without
     focussing too much on the particular tools that you choose. The
     concepts are universal, although most examples will be in Perl.
     We’ll also look at various attack vectors (SQL Injection, XSS,
     CSRF, and more) and see how you can avoid them. Whether you’re an
     experienced web developer (we all need reminding) or just starting
     out, this talk can help avoid being the next easy harvest of The Bad
[From the YAPC::NA_Blog.]
