One of the top attacks against web apps have always been Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). In this “Teach Security” part of this talk, XSS will be dissected and demonstrated, so you would learn about why this attack is so prevalent and potent as well as learn about how you can mitigate it. In the “Teach Christ” part of this talk, a look at Cross-Site Scripting from a biblical perspective will be covered.
