Node.js is the drive-and-go language and its popularity is soaring. Five years after its debut, and the language’s framework boasts more 2M downloads a month.

Before accelerating too quickly, it is important to understand the power – and corresponding mishaps – of this language.

In this talk, we demonstrate new attack techniques against applications built on top of the Node.js language.

Attacks include:

·        Password exposure attacks. Leveraging the “Forgot My Password” feature of applications in order to reveal the passwords of all the application’s users

·        Business logic attacks. Running malicious code on all machines of users of the applications when exploiting a weak business feature
