June 5th - 1:00pm PDT - Clean up your legacy code with Codechecker
We will take a look at a free open source tool for checking your ColdFusion code for vulnerabilities. There are several rules that it can check for. Those include missing cfqueryparams and un-var scoped variables. The value of this code checker is that you can build rules for it.

Shout out to Chris Weller who helped me build on top of his project to make the Code Checker a ColdBox app, and now a CommandBox command.

ForgeBox Module of the Week

Type: ColdBox ModuleLink:
Annotation driven guards for authentication and authorization in ColdBox
cbguard lets us lock down methods to logged in users and users with specific permissions using one annotation — secured. Just sticking the secured annotation on a handler or action is enough to require a user to log in before executing those events.
Author: Brad Wood
Install: box install cbguard
