I recently gave a presentation titled “Code Obfuscation, PHP shells & more: what hackers do once they get passed your (PHP) code". I’ve received positive feedback, which is why I think this may be worth sharing. This presentation is based on nearly a decade of experience working at Nucleus.be.

Any comments are greatly appreciated.
