Event Description

Lets HACK it

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with Dev & Intel — is a month-long celebration of open-source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

We will be showing and giving a live demo on how to get started with web exploits with open-source OWAP Juice Shop on windows

OWASP Juice Shop is probably the most modern and sophisticated insecure web application! It can be used in security training, awareness demos, CTFs, and as a guinea pig for security tools! Juice Shop encompasses vulnerabilities from the entire OWASP Top Ten along with many other security flaws found in real-world applications!

Juice Shop is written in Node.js, Express, and Angular. It was the first application written entirely in JavaScript listed in the OWASP VWA Directory.

The application contains a vast number of hacking challenges of varying difficulty where the user is supposed to exploit the underlying vulnerabilities. The hacking progress is tracked on a scoreboard. Finding this scoreboard is actually one of the (easy) challenges!

Apart from the hacker and awareness training use case, pentesting proxies or security scanners can use Juice Shop as a “guinea pig”-application to check how well their tools cope with JavaScript-heavy application frontends and REST APIs.

Penetration testing aka Pen Test is the most commonly used security testing technique for web applications. Web Application Penetration Testing is done by simulating unauthorized attacks internally or externally to get access to sensitive data. A web penetration helps end-user find out the possibility for a hacker to access the data from the internet, find about the security of their email servers and also get to know how secure the web hosting site and server are.
