      The survey, judged by Rich Mogull, Chris Hoff, H D Moore, and Jeff Forristal, is an awesome listing of of web attacks.

      Go to JG’s blog for click able links for each exploit.

      Top Ten Web Hacking Techniques of 2008 (Official)
      We searched far and wide collecting as many Web Hacking Techniques published in 2008 as possible — ~70 in all. These new and innovative techniques were analyzed and ranked based upon their novelty, impact, and pervasiveness. The 2008 competition was exceptionally fierce and our panel of judges (Rich Mogull, Chris Hoff, H D Moore, and Jeff Forristal) had their work cut out for them. For any researcher, or “breaker” if you prefer, simply the act of creating something unique enough to appear on the list is no small feat. That much should be considered an achievement. In the end, ten Web hacking techniques rose head and shoulders above.

      Supreme honors go to Billy Rios, Nathan McFeters, Rob Carter, and John Heasman for GIFAR! The judges were convinced their work stood out amongst the field. Beyond industry recognition, they also will receive the free pass to Black Hat USA 2009 (generously sponsored by Black Hat)! Now they have to fight over it. 😉

      Congratulations to all!

      Coming up at SnowFROC AppSec 2009 and RSA Conference 2009 it will be my great privilege to highlight the results. Each of the top ten techniques will be described in technical detail for how they work, what they can do, who they affect, and how best to defend against them. The opportunity provides a chance to get a closer look at the new attacks that could be used against us in the future — some of which already have.
