Techniques to Secure your Rails app Jump to Story

Jeremy Walker recently posted part 1 of his three part series talking about techniques to secure your Rails website. He talks about a few ways hackers can manipulate data before it hits your server, how Rails protects us from most of these situations, and thow you can protect yourself further. Data manipulation includes things like session hijacking, session fixation attacks, cross-site request forgery, etc. If you use the “match” keyword without specifying the method within your routes then you can call the route using a get GET method which doesn't check for an authenticity token.
