      EH-Net EXCLUSIVE: eLearnSecurity Officially Launches Hack.me WebApp Labs[/align:25ka0dab]

      Imagine a security virtual lab that is run by the community for the community… Free of charge! This is Hack.me. Hack.me allows web application security researchers and instructors to create and share vulnerable web applications for testing and educational purposes. Users will be able to run and practice offensive techniques against always new vulnerable web applications provided by the community. Practicing the OWASP Top 10, testing vulnerabilities against CMSs, verifying the latest exploits against COTS will be just a click away. Hack.me is completely FREE for all to use, accessible online and hosted in the cloud. Based on the Coliseum Framework, every vulnerable application created on hack.me is run on the fly in an absolutely safe and isolated sandbox. Join this webinar where Armando Romeo, founder of eLearnSecurity backing the Hack.me project, and Thomas MacKenzie, web application security specialist, will unveil the project and launch it to the world.

      Armando Romeo is the founder of eLearnSecurity and co-author of Penetration Testing Course Professional. With over 100 security advisories published with the Hackers Center Security Research Group and vulnerabilities found in Microsoft, Joomla, osCommerce, Invision and others, Armando has spent the first part of his career in web application security research. He currently serves as CEO of eLearnSecurity, inspiring and leading new R&D projects like Hera, Coliseum, and Hack.me developed in the eLearnSecurity labs in Pisa, Italy. Thomas Mackenzie is an Application Security Consultant based in England, United Kingdom. Thomas has been asked to present technical talks at a number of international events including, DeepSec, Bsides Chicago, 44con and BlackHat Abu Dhabi. Thomas also speaks at a number of domestic venues including; OWASP events across the UK, PHP London, Marketing Event around WordPress, DC4420 and guest lecturing on appsec and vulnerability management at a number of UK universities. Thomas is the founder of upSploit Advisory Management, an automated disclosure system that helps security researchers and vendors communicate vulnerability information quickly, easily and in an ethical manner. Thomas found a number of vulnerabilities in well known software i.e. WordPress and a highly downloaded iPhone App.
