Website Penetration Testing (VAPT)

website penetration testing pune, india


Exploiting website vulnerabilities is Number One problem in the world. This is solely because website are open to internet and hence can potentially expose sensitive data which interests the evil hackers. Thats the reason web security testing services are so important for organizations

Websites are typically vulnerable to code based or network based attacks. This enables hackers to take over and control system components such as routers, firewalls, switches and servers and in worst cases, the website code. Even though the website is plain simple and static html based, it needs detailed pen-testing (VAPT testing), and is often forgotten by IT management. Thus security testing of websites or web portals or web applications is highly required. It must be carried out by certified best penetration testing (pentest) companies who follow security testing methodologies based on OWASP Top-10 model.

Why Web Application Pentesting (VAPT) Is Essential??

Web servers and the application code running on those as a simple website or web portal, are vulnerable to various attacks. In one type of attack, the hacker can simply deface the pages, while in other serious types, the attacker can potentially steal data and disrupt website operations. Web security testing is especially important in case of e-commerce based portals, wherein the entire business relies on website and its data contents. In case of recent trend the websites cater to mobile based applications which demands for an end to end testing for total app security. Its important to understand that merely having firewalls and Layer-7 devices are not enough because those cannot detect code level vulnerabilities, and hence a detailed website VAPT along with code security review is highly recommended.

SQL injection vulnerabilities remain a headache for Web app developers, security professionals and database administrators . In a recent survey of 800 IT security pros and developers by the Ponemon Institute and app security firm Security Innovation, 42% of developers and 46% of security practitioners admitted SQL injection at the application layer had been exploited in a recent breach against their organizations. The responses made SQL injection the most-cited attack vector on a list that included cross-site scripting and privilege escalation.
SQL injection attacks exploit nonvalidated user input to issue commands through an application to a back-end database. Finding the holes through which these attacks can be launched isn’t all that difficult. One of the first things attackers like to do is to see how an application handles errors. Another way to search for vulnerable sites is through Google hacking. Google hacking uses search engines to find security gaps by leveraging the mountains of data they index. An attacker might start by entering a search query—called a Google Dork— designed to locate results that could offer a clue about sites that might be vulnerable. There are a number of Google Dorks that can be useful for a hacker searching for a SQL injection vulnerability to exploit.
Fortunately, SQL injection vulnerabilities are relatively easy to prevent. One strategy is to sanitize user input. Another is to use parameterized queries and stored procedures. According to the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), developers should consider using parameterized queries (prepared statements) that use placeholders for parameters whose values are ultimately supplied at execution time. Though taking this approach can negatively impact performance, it can help block attacks.
