PCI training equals lessons in how to hack

Today at work, all developers were required to take an all-day training in PCI. This is the second such session that I’ve attended since I was hired. It’s all very interesting to learn about, however, it really boils down to hacking. They are teaching us all the methods that we (our websites) can be hacked. The surprising part is how much my co-workers already know about how to attack a site. We discussed how we would attack something and then talked about the pros and cons for each type. All in all, great way to spend a day at work.
