HTTP Can Do That?!

Scheduled: Wednesday, June 24, 2015 from 2:30 – 3:15pm in B202/203

Excerpt

I have explored weird corners of HTTP -- malformed requests that try to trick a site admin into clicking spam links in 404 logs, an API that responds to POST but not GET, and more. In this talk I'll walk you through those (using Python, netcat, and other tools you might have lying around the house).
