Welcome To OWASP!!

Hi there! if you are a young, fierce and creative youngster looking for action and hacking adventures this is your place. OWASP is an organization that create awareness providing learning tools to programmers and developers on how to code secure and avoid being hacked.

Many of the tasks you will find in this page are about 'hacking' and protecting web applications.
