Securing Code Through Social Engineering

Christina Camilleri has an interesting presentation from QCon on “Securing Code Through Social Engineering”.  Christina provides a few real world stories around social engineering (7mins) – password reset over the phone.  Secure code has improved over the years due to publicity of issues from large companies like Microsoft and Adobe, and also thanks to the checklists, libraries, frameworks and books written about secure software engineering.  However, social engineering can bypass all of these code improvements.

Be careful when your banks rings you 🙂
