Insecure object reference is a very common bug in online applications which most of the time leads to significant data breaches. In this episode I talk about one such vulnerability I discovered recently in a covid-related application.

I deal with this all the time

Thanks for this episode. I write software in the medical field all the time. It's good to see that the best practices that I've been taught are actually correct.

I would love another episode like this!
