Nam Review:

Aug 31, 2008

  • Appendix D
  • Appendix C
  • Appendix B
  • Appendix A
  • Chapter 5
  • Chapter 4
    • Section 4.11 Testing for AJAX Vulnerabilities
      • There are mentioning of "attackers" but I think they are fine.
      • The subsection on Memory leaks is not complete.
    • Section 4.11 Testing for AJAX
      • The subsection "Intercepting and Debugging JS code with Browsers" is very difficult to understand. I tried to fix it, but I'm afraid what I have might not reflect what the original author wanted to express.

  • Chapter 4
    • Section 4.10
      • Subsection Testing for WS Replay Gray box testing and examples gives incomplete sample code. I believe the call to GetSessionIDMac() missed four parameters. In this same part, using SSL helps in preventing replay attack but it doesnt prevent replay attack by itself. In this same subection, the images show identifiable real Internet address in Hungary, should them be masked off?

  • Chapter 4
    • Section 4.9
    • Section 4.8
      • I'm not sure if format string could be classified under subsection 4.8.14 "Buffer overflow testing".
      • Subsecion 4.8.3: Incomplete
      • Subsection 4.8.4: Incomplete
      • Subsection 4.8.5: What is "data-plane input"?
