AFUP Forum PHP 2024 Baromètre Planète PHP PUFA

How your PHP application can get hacked, and how to prevent that from happening?


You’ve probably heard about XSS, SQL Injection, and RCE. Very few developers out there have witnessed first-hand what exploiting any of the mentioned vulnerabilities looks like, and therefore don’t necessarily understand the consequences that having such vulnerabilities in your application can have. In this talk, we’ll exploit some commonly known vulnerabilities (OWASP top 10) and misconfigurations that can occur to a PHP application running on a Linux based host. By learning to think like a hacker you’ll be able to develop more secure applications with PHP, and to keep your users, clients, and yourself safe.

This presentation consists of security concept theory sections from PHP developers' point-of-view and a few hands-on hacking demonstrations. At the end of the presentation, we go through a set of concrete action steps to secure our applications from the vulnerabilities we learned about earlier.

Conférence donnée lors du Forum PHP 2020, ayant eu lieu les 22 et 23 octobre 2020.

Le speaker


Antti is an IT entrepreneur, a PHP enthusiast, and an OSCP certified white-hat hacker based in Helsinki Finland. During the daytime, he’s leading an innovative recruitment technology company called Jobilla, where he’s mainly focusing hands-on in the product design and development processes day-to-day. For the night time and weekends, he turns into a white hat hacker that loves to solve CTF challenges and puzzles and to spend time penetration testing software in bug bounty programs in order to make the web a safer place for us all. He is passionate about teaching fellow developers about software security (especially within the PHP community), and is known for concrete hands-on oriented presentations and workshops.


Very good talk, 15mn more would be perfect

Very good ! Nice to have security talk :)
Quentin Bihet, le 22/10/2020
Very good talk! Even though OWASP top10 is discussed, applied examples give a different angle to the talk and make it stand out compared to the baseline usual OWASP top ten talks we are already used to.

Fantastic talk ! Very helpful to understand how hacking works and how to protect your project. Only thing it was missing was time, 15 minutes more would have been good.
