It's rather simple.. and it deals with vulns at the "server level" (no sqli, rfi, xss, etc..) anyway..

It has 2 slide shows and 1 problem set.

Honestly, I wasn't impressed.

I had a look through them, and they seem to be rather disjointed, and it isn't really related to "Web security" in any definition of the term. The only way this ties in with the web is that the buggy piece of code used is a simple Java HTTP server.

Well it's basic knowledge of HTTP webservers. It's good to understand what simple things like a couple injected CR LF's (or spaces,chars) can do. Because it's nearly the only thing to take a webserver down in a reliable manner. It still can be done on Apache btw, numerous exploits available.

But I agree with Kuzaa, it's a bit offtopic to give a java example to illustrate it. Still, it are the basics.
