This category is for tagging common types of application security attacks.

What is an attack?

Attacks are the techniques that attackers use to exploit the vulnerabilities in applications. Attacks are often confused with vulnerabilities, so please try to be sure that the attack you are describing is something that an attacker would do, rather than a weakness in an application.

All attack articles should follow the Attack template.

Examples:

  • Brute Force: Is the analysis of remote server, checking characters password of the operating system (letters, numbers and symbol's) Brute_force_attack
  • Cache Poisoning: Is the execution of malicious code in the browser to spy on their contents Cache_Poisoning
  • DNS Poisoning: Is the execution of malicious code on the DNS server by redirecting Web pages
  • ... make sure the attack is listed for each Often_Misused:_Authentication

Note: many of the items marked vulnerabilities from CLASP and other places are really attacks. Some of the more obvious are:
