- Cross-site request forgery: This is the concept in which user’s cookie session will be hijacked and they will be using it and ethically for different kinds of tasks and unauthorised actions on the website or application. The most common way of initiating this particular concept is to find out the unprotected elements present on the webpage and exploit them. Luckily this particular vulnerability was discovered by a bug bounty researcher and was quickly fixed by the company before it could lead to different kinds of damages in the cases of Glassdoor.
- Client-side problems: Whenever the developers will be introducing the outside application programming interface on the client-side that it can make everything very much vulnerable to outside attacks and in the cases of these kinds of things poor website development practices can be the most common blame. Hence, this particular concept can lead to accessibility to the content which can even be returned directly to the web browser and can include sessions as well as cookies.
- It is very much important for the organisation to indulge in the implementation of the runtime application self-protection systems because this is the best possible technology that has been perfectly designed with the motive of detecting the attacks on the application in real-time.
- This concept will help in analysing the behaviour as well as the context of the behaviour into the applications and further make sure that everything becomes easy in terms of identification and mitigation without any kind of human intervention.
- Encrypting the data on the client and server side is very much important to ensure that the application becomes much more safe and secure. Even if the hackers will have access to the data everything will be available in the encrypted form which will not be usable for them and at the same time the people need to send the cookies as secure to limit the utilisation of application so that everything is secure and encrypted webpages are only available.
- ZAP: This is based upon the security authority of OWASP and this is the best possible way of scanning the website for numerous kinds of validity is at the same time. It can even be customised depending upon the requirements of the people and can even offer an easy as well as an intuitive interface to the people.
- Wapiti: This particular scanner is the best possible way of detecting the file inclusion, file disclosure and several other kinds of things and further it is very much important on the behalf of people to depend upon this particular advanced level tool so that they can execute the things towards the command line very easily and efficiently and are very much successful in terms of dealing with the security vulnerabilities in the whole process without any kind of problem.
