Common Web App Attacks

Posted on October 20, 2012. Filed under: SANS Dev 541 |

In this section, We will talk about some of the most common web application vulnerabilities such as XSS (cross site scripting), CSRF (cross site request forgery),  SQL injection, HTTP response splitting, and Parameter manipulation. There will be some java examples, which we study and learn how to spot and fix vulnerabilities in common web applications.

Before we dive in specific web app attacks, I will recommend you to take a look at the following interesting video. Dr. Loveland and her special guest Eve Hacker take you on a precautionary journey regarding computer security, with a talk entitled “How to Hack a Web Site”. Many hack techniques are demonstrated: dictionary password attack, XSS, session steal, parameter manipulation, access control attack and more.
