Static Analysis of Scala Applications


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by SHIFTLEFT

Wednesday, November 11, 2020
1 p.m. EDT

Scala is gaining a lot of popularity in the web sphere, owing to its elegant design and a very versatile design that allows a fusion of object oriented design patterns along with a functional programming style. Scala is compact and yields better performance that its counterparts. In this webinar, we will understand some examples of how vulnerabilities can occur in Scala web applications.

We will go through some common SQLi and XSS patterns and see how they can be exploited from attacker controlled sources. We will then use static analysis based vulnerability discovery using ShiftLeft NG-SAST to see how such vulnerabilities can be discovered, along with a detailed view of the exact path in the application through which the exploit can pass.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Understand how common vulnerability patterns in Scala web applications
  • See how data flows from attacker controlled source methods to vulnerable sink methods
  • Use static analysis tools to discover these vulnerabilities

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event. Your prospects may not even make it to the body of the message, so get your point across immediately.  Capture their attention, pique their interest, and push them towards the desired action (i.e. signing up for your event). You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
