Common Security Mistakes in Spring Web Applications

When developing web applications in Java, Spring has become the framework of choice for many developers. Its default configuration and high level of abstraction provide a remarkable amount of convenience and flexibility for its users. However, it easily happens that important functionalities and behaviors of the framework stay unknown, especially to inexperienced developers. These unintentionally exposed features could potentially be exploited by malicious users. In this MeetUp we will take a look at some common security pitfalls when using the Spring framework and how to avoid them.
