Web Application Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing refers to a set of services used to detect various security issues with web applications.

Enterprises across the world are performing their business on the web, yet only a meager percentage of websites are regularly and professionally tested for vulnerabilities[citation needed], potentially leaving organisations open to attacks via vulnerable web applications.

Web Application Penetration Testing services help identify vulnerabilities and risks in web applications, including:

  • Known vulnerabilities in COTS applications
  • Technical vulnerabilities: URL manipulation, SQL injection, cross site scripting, back-end authentication, password in memory, session hijacking, buffer overflow, web server configuration, credential management, Clickjacking, etc,
  • Business logic errors: Day-to-Day threat analysis, unauthorized logins, personal information modification, pricelist modification, unauthorized funds transfer, breach of customer trust etc.
