WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - November 6, 2007) - Ounce Labs, the industry leader in software risk analysis, today announced that it will participate in AppSec 2007, a leading conference for the application security community. The OWASP & WASC AppSec 2007 Conference will focus on the most common web application security problems, including the OWASP Top Ten, and will highlight hacking techniques, illustrating how easily application vulnerabilities can be exploited, so participants can eliminate such code vulnerabilities. The conference will be held in on November 12-15, 2007 at eBay facilities in San Jose, Calif.

"We are pleased that Ounce shares our dedication to bringing together industry, government, and security researchers to discuss the state of the art in application security."
