Why Is Web Application Security Important?
The world today runs on apps, from online banking and remote work apps to personal entertainment delivery and e-commerce. It’s no wonder that applications are a primary target for attackers, who exploit vulnerabilities such as design flaws as well as weaknesses in APIs, open-source code, third-party widgets, and access control.
Common attacks against web applications include:
- Brute force
- Credential stuffing
- SQL injection and formjacking injections
- Cross-site scripting
- Cookie poisoning
- Man-in-the-middle (MITM) and man-in-the-browser attacks
- Sensitive data disclosure
- Insecure deserialization
- Session hijacking
Brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing correctly. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases until the correct one is found.
Credential stuffing is a type of cyberattack in which the attacker collects stolen account credentials, typically consisting of lists of usernames and/or email addresses and the corresponding passwords
A SQL injection attack consists of insertion or “injection” of a SQL query via the input data from the client to the application. A successful SQL injection exploit can read sensitive data from the database, modify database data (Insert/Update/Delete), execute administration operations on the database (such as shutdown the DBMS),
Cross Site Scripting
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks are a type of injection, in which malicious scripts are injected into otherwise benign and trusted websites. XSS attacks occur when an attacker uses a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser side script, to a different end user.
Cookie poisoning—also known as session hijacking—is an attack strategy in which the attacker alters, forges, hijacks, or otherwise “poisons” an otherwise valid cookie sent back to a server to steal data, bypass security, or both.
Dynamic application security testing (DAST)
Static Application Security Testing (SAST)
Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is known as white-box testing, where the tester requires a deeper understanding of the system being tested and access to the source code at rest. SAST tools examine the source code at rest to detect and report on potential security vulnerabilities. Manual (SAST) testing is more intrusive than automated (DAST) testing and may involve adding, altering and deleting data within the application.
