  • Discuss how we're planning to help PJUG appeal to a broader more diverse audience.
  • Chris Hansen will present his take-aways from JavaOne last month.
  • Sean Sullivan from gilt.com will present on web application security and Apache Struts.


In September 2017, Equifax announced a major security breach. The breach may have exposed sensitive data for over 100 million US consumers. The breach was due, in part, to a vulnerability in an older release of Apache Struts 2.x

This talk will examine the vulnerabilities from the Apache Struts framework. We will review the underlying Java code and discuss the fixes that were applied by the Apache Struts team.


Sean Sullivan is a Principal Software Engineer at HBC Digital. Sean has been a member of the HBC/Gilt team since 2011.
