Live Hack: Exploiting AI-Generated Code with Snyk

Tuesday, February 27, 2024

2:00 - 3:00 PM EST

60 minutes, including Q&A

AI-assisted coding tools increase your delivery speed… and security risks. In the span of just one hour, we’ll build a demo app using GitHub Copilot and ChatGPT, and live hack the results, showing how the generated code can be exploited.

Watch this on-demand session to:

  • Get an overview of AI in development and common AI security risks
  • Use GitHub Copilot to build a coffee shop demo app with features including a dynamic homepage, searchable products, and personalized user profiles
  • Uncover and exploit AI-generated vulnerabilities, including SQL injection, cross-site scripting, directory traversal and more
  • Learn effective strategies to mitigate and fix the AI-generated vulnerabilities

By the end of the session you’ll have built a demo app, hacked and fixed at least 3 vulnerabilities and gained insights into best practices for utilizing generative AI coding tools securely.

Recommended prerequisites for participating in the session:

  • ChatGPT account
  • GitHub Copilot account
  • Free Snyk Account
  • IDE (VS Code, Visual Studio, Eclipse, Jetbrains)
