Feb 19, 2013, 09:00 ET from Coverity

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coverity, Inc., the leader in development testing, today announced it will present at RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco. Romain Gaucher from the Coverity Security Research Laboratory will present during the Application Security track:

What: "Why Haven't We Stamped Out SQL Injection and XSS Yet?"
When: Friday, March 1, 2012, 10:20 AM PT
Where: RSA San Francisco, Moscone Center, Room 132
Who: Romain Gaucher, Lead Security Researcher, Coverity

The presentation will explore why SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities are still common in software code, and what both developers and security professionals should be aware of in order to fix these issues earlier in the software development lifecycle.

Coverity has analyzed more than five million lines of open source and proprietary Java code to understand the precise coding errors that lead to the most common, yet critical, software issues. In addition to presenting details regarding the complexities of SQL injection and XSS defects, Gaucher will offer suggestions on ways for security professionals to better communicate with developers to mitigate the introduction of these defects into their software code.

Coverity will also be exhibiting at RSA Conference 2013, at Booth #1759.
