File uploading is a scary thing for web developers. You’re allowing complete strangers to put whatever they want onto your precious web server. By uploading malicious code, an attacker can compromise the web server or even serve malware to its users.
Identification and Exploitation of the Most Common Vulnerabilities in Web Applications
By Germán Sánchez Garcés, Security Researcher at Telefonica Digital
This entry aims to explain the processes of identification and exploitation of the most common vulnerabilities that can be found in web applications. This guide will attempt to guide the auditors to conduct an audit of web security, to provide the concepts required to carry it out.
Web Exploit – Clickjacking
By Bamidele Ajayi, OCP, MCTS, MCITP EA, CISA, CISM
Clickjacking, also known as a “UI redress attack”(User Interface redress attack, UI redress attack, UI redressing), is when an attacker uses multiple transparent or opaque layers to trick a user into clicking on a button or link on another page when they were intending to click on the top level page.
MAN IN THE MIDDLE ATTACKS
HTML Hacking: Stealing localStorage with XSS and MiTM Attacks
By Christopher Duffy, CEH, CHFI,CNDA, EDRP, RHCSA, RHCT, CWSP, CWNA, ISO-27000, GPEN, VCP 3, CIW:WSP, CIW:WSS, CIW:WSE, CIW:WSA, CIW:WFA, Security+, Network+
Hypertext Markup Language version 5 (HTML5) was designed to provide increased functionality to web users. The changes have enabled richer content, improved multimedia capabilities and decreased bandwidth requirements. Unfortunately, web servers that utilize the new HTML5 features are often configured insecurely.
How To Perform MiTM Attack
By Chintan Gujar, Freelance Penetration Tester
and Edmund Desler, Freelance Network Engineer
Today, we are giving you demonstration of MITM attack, that how an attacker can perform MITM attack to see your credentials in plain text in order to gain access to your account. You will also learn that how http configuration can be done at server side and how attacker actually comes in between scenario and performs this attack.
CROSS-SITE SCRYPTING ATTACKS
Manually Exploiting JBoss jmx-console
By Tony Lee, Scientist at FireEye
and Chris Lee, Security Consultant at Foundstone
JavaBeans Open Source Software Application Server (commonly shortened to JBoss) is a very popular open source implementation for handling JavaServer Pages (JSP). JBoss contains a web accessible administrator page called the JMX Console.
Cross-site Request Forgery
By Daan Vellinga, Information Security Consultant at Vest
Cross site request forgery deserves its complex name. That is not, however, because it is difficult to perform, but because of how difficult it is to protect against. In this article I will tell you about both of these subjects – attack and defence.
SQL INJECTION ATTACKS
SQL-Injection: If You Know It, You Prevent It
By Mattia Folador, CEH, CHFI
Every professional in the field of IT Security has heard about SQL-Injection at least once in her carrier. It is taught in many IT-related degree courses and almost every computer scientist will quote the classic string “ or 1=1– ”, if asked. Considered that, one may think that such a vulnerability is extinct or about to be completely defeated by protections such as input sanitization procedures or Web Application Firewalls (WAF).
Blind and Time based SQL Injections
By Vidit Baxi, CEH, MCTS, MCP
Blind and Time based SQL Injections are two attacks vectors which exploit the database to the level where even unresponding web pages leak out the data behind.
