This year’s IRISSCERT Conference on Cybercrime was the setting for the “Secure Code Warrior” programming contest. Competitors had to complete a number of hands-on challenges, analysing application source code for security weaknesses before modifying the code to remediate or mitigate the weaknesses.

Participants, including developers from Ireland, Holland, Austria and Germany, battled it out over 6 hours before the title of “Secure Code Warrior” was eventually won by ITB Digital Forensics and Cyber Security lecturer Mark Cummins.
