Usually white hackers when they enter the admin section and plant a shell directly patch the vulnerabilities and never take scripts/defaces etc., so they patch without the knowledge of the web admin, while some programmers don't really know how to find website vulnerabilities, only know how to fix them. ” Anggrahito said, and there were still many questions from the participants. then after a question and answer session, submission of certificates and photos with the first and second speakers, the event was temporarily suspended until 13.30 noon
