With digital transformation, many companies are implementing web applications in their companies. For this reason, it is very important to understand the security measures that can be implemented to create new applications or applications that are currently working. Almost all vulnerabilities can be exploited, regardless of the size of the company.

The Open Web Application Security Service, a community that provides data from 500,000 web applications through its partners, publishes a document called OWASP Top 10, which summarizes the 10 most common web vulnerabilities, and which by 2022.

Software is in our lives today, and logically, the more complex it is, the more important it is; that is, the stronger it is, the more likely it is to be compromised by cybercriminals.

What are these weaknesses and how do they affect them?

1. Broken or restricted access control

Access control allows the implementation of authorization and service policies; users can access certain areas. These restrictions mean that users cannot perform work outside of their authority and retain access to any resources. A flawed access control system gives users access to resources they shouldn’t.

How will this affect my business?

  • Cybercriminals can use user or administrator privileges to perform this process.
  • Access confidential records, directories or files for subsequent disclosure.

2. Cryptographic failures

Certain specific data, such as access credentials, bank details, company confidential information, etc., must be encrypted, because it can be disastrous for the company and cyber criminals can use this data, except as required by law. . In short, in order for these to be seen only by authorized personnel in the company, they must be kept using standards and strict algorithms and protocols.

How will this affect my company?

    Sensitive data being exposed to cyber criminals (personal, critical or corporate strategic data; credentials…).

3. Injection 

This happens when cyber criminals can send harmful data to the converters. This year’s new site article is part of this group. To do this, you must have a secure API and validation controls when entering data.

How will this affect my company?

  • Cyber ​​criminals expose and can change sensitive data.
  • In some cases, it may allow cyber criminals to control the server.

4. Insecure design

When you open a web application, the security of the application must be included through the configuration, because this new version was introduced this year due to the large number of applications that do not qualify for this version. The design of many applications is not good.

How will this affect my company?

  • Cyber ​​criminals expose and can change data.
  • Cybercriminals have administrator or user rights to access servers/applications.

5. Security Misconfiguration

In our web application environment, cybercriminals will try to access through default accounts, old versions with updated vulnerabilities, unsecured directories and more. Therefore, it is important to configure everything correctly and avoid using default credentials, as in the case of our servers, applications or devices.

How will this affect my company?

    Fraudsters or criminals gain access to the sensitive equipment or data.

6. Weak and old things

Cybercriminals can compromise systems through known vulnerabilities in standard equipment, such as operating system versions or applications installed on servers.

How will this affect my company?

    Some of these weaknesses may have minor effects. Still, the most serious security breaches occur through the exploitation of these vulnerabilities.

7. Failure detection and analysis

This happens if the number of authentication checks in the access interface is not controlled, the complexity of the password is low, or if the “2FA” method is not implemented a lot. This can allow cybercriminals to break into it using brute force or dictionary attacks, or when your application allows weak passwords.

How will this affect my company?

    Cybercriminals will have access to administrative or user accounts within the application. Big companies like thetradebuzz.com must take specific measures to prevent this failure.

8. Software and Data Integrity Failures

Many applications update automatically. Cybercriminals can modify these updates by uploading their own updates and distributing them without their approval.

How will this affect my company?

    Cybercriminals include unwanted code in my apps.

10. Server side request or SSRF

When our web application delivers the URL to an unauthorized external resource, cybercriminals can modify it for malicious purposes and make unauthorized requests.

How will this affect my company?

       Steal sensitive company data.

       Access to internal company systems.
