Can you spot security mistakes in your code? Why not challenge yourself with Brett Hardin’s SpotTheVuln. When not working as a security engineer at Symantec, Hardin posts a weekly challenge for developers to “Spot the Vulnerability” in a piece of open source code. You try to fix the code and at the end of the week Hardin and his partner show the solution.
Hardin explained that code with weak security is an extremely common problem as developers have limited time and project managers are pressuring them to simply add more features.
