November 2006 Meeting Minutes

I would like to thank all who attended the Tampa Java User Group November meeting. The meeting was well attended with 17 people who wanted to hear about secure computing.

Speaker John Collins did a great job providing valuable information regarding general security and secure computing practices. The discussion revolved around the types of vulnerabilities and tools that are available to identify or exploit these vulnerabilities. Did you know that a badly written file-serving servlet can divulge the content of your web.xml? We also look at different type of attacks and the phases of attack and tools used in each phase.
