OWASP WASC Web Hacking Incidents Database Project

The OWASP WASC Web Hacking Incidents Database Project is a project dedicated to maintaining a list of web applications related security incidents.

Description

WHID goal is to serve as a tool for raising awareness of the web application security problem and provide information for statistical analysis of web applications security incidents. The database is unique in tracking only media reported security incidents that can be associated with a web application security vulnerability. This data is in contrast to many public statistics reports on vulnerability prevalence in that it shows what types of vulnerabilities attackers are actively exploiting.

How is WHID different than the OWASP Top 10?
The OWASP Top 10 Risks applies a community-based Threat Model discussion to estimate the top risks to web applications. OWASP WHID, on the other hand, focuses mainly on Attack Liklihood rather than Vulnerability Prevalence.
How do I submit a WHID Incident?
If you have identified a possible WHID candidate, please use of the following methods to notify the WHID project team:
  1. Send an email to - owaspwhid_at_owasp.org
  2. Send a tweet to @owaspwhid
  3. Enter a link in the WHID Submittal Form

  • We are always looking for new methods of identifying real-world web compromise data sources. If you have any ideas, please contact us.
  • We are also looking for new ways to store and analyze the data. Currently we utilize Google's FusionTables to store our raw data. If you have recommendations for improvements, please let us know.

Involvement in the development and promotion of WHID is actively encouraged! You do not have to be a security expert in order to contribute. Some of the ways you can help:
