Website Vulnerability

Vulnerability is a cyber-security word, which actually means a weakness that lets an attacker to reduce information security and information assurance. Vulnerability is the intersection of three elements namely, a system susceptibility or flaw, attacker access to the flaw and attacker capability to exploit the flaw.

To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker must have at least one applicable technique which can connect to a system weakness. Vulnerability is also called the attack surface.

Here come the some possibilities of website vulnerability:

  • Command injection technique lets an attacker to perform system commands by misusing an application feature. The injection happens when the developer uses user input to construct a performable command specific to the pseudo system shell in use.
  • Expression Language Injection happens when attacker controlled data enters an interpreter, i.e. the data is evaluated as code.
  • A default login is the same for every instance of the application. It is used to grant a first time access to hardware bundles control panels and administration interfaces.
  • Local File Include vulnerability lets attackers to recover or perform server-side files. It happens by the fact that the developer allows not sanitized user-supplied input to be used in functions used to open, read or display the file’s content.
  • Remote Code Injection lets an attacker to remotely inject code into an application to alter their execution flow. It happens because of the fact that the application is written in a language lets dynamic evaluation of code at run time.
  • Remote File Include lets attackers to operate the application to include a remote file hosted on third part server. The file may be executable, written in a scripting language.
  • SQL Injection technique make full use of a security vulnerability that happens in a database layer of a web application. It happens because of the fact that when user input is incorrectly filtered for special characters in a SQL statement, by that means unexpectedly executed, i.e. the input was injected in to the SQL statement issued by the web application.
  • Weak Session management occurs when the web application produces a session cookie, which value is easily predictable.
  • LDAP Injection technique is used in opposition with application that construct LDAP statement depended on user input.
  • XSS, which is a web application security vulnerability, lets code injection by harmful web users into the web pages viewed by other users.
  • Stored Cross-site Scripting is a kind of XSS, where the injected content is permanently saved on to web server. Whenever a user requests an infected page from the server the payload is directly embedded in the response, so it will be executed without the need of user intervention.
  • XML Injection can be used by attackers to include malignant XML block, which is then used by an XML processor.
  • XPATH Injection technique is used when an application uses user supplied data to craft XPATH queries to recover and write data saved in XML form.
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery is an attack that forces an end-user to perform unwanted actions on a web application with which he is currently authenticated. Applications susceptible of this attack have no way to distinguish legit requests from forged ones.

 

Hackers always try to hack your website or business details to take down you or website, but in most case these hack to steal your information or card details.
