It is no secret that the risks that threaten your web applications are constantly evolving. Therefore, it is very important to get an overview of which bugs and vulnerabilities occur most frequently in order to avoid them effectively.
The OWASP Foundation, therefore, publishes the top 10 most common web application bugs and vulnerabilities at regular periods. A standard document, known as the OWASP Top 10, was created to enable developers and organizations to ensure that their web apps minimize these risks through security measures. The OWASP Top 10 is a good starting point to raise awareness of these major threats.
They are recognized by developers worldwide as the first step towards more secure coding.
About the OWASP Top 10 Web Vulnerabilities
The acronym OWASP stands for Open Web Application Security Project. The OWASP Foundation works to improve the security of software through its community-led open-source software projects, hundreds of chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and by hosting local and global conferences.
The OWASP lists do an amazing job of analyzing and revising individual risks, techniques, and vulnerability fixes. The top 10 are essential reading for anyone developing web applications, as they point out the danger of the vulnerabilities that Code Intelligence prevents with its CI Fuzz solution, among others. We've summarized these vulnerabilities and risks in a handy document. To find out how automated security testing can help you prevent OWASP top 10 bugs and vulnerabilities, download our infographic.
Don't stop at 10. There are hundreds of issues that can compromise the overall security of a web application. Also, don't forget that this top 10 will continue to change. We will not only help you with the current top 10! Code Intelligence makes security an integral part of your corporate culture throughout your development organization. We enable teams to establish security in the coding, configuration, and delivery of their products.
CI Fuzz can easily be integrated into your CI/CD, where it enables you to test and secure your code continuously. Get an overview of the CI Fuzz testing platform by watching our demo video.
