As web applications have become a central aspect of business operations, their security is now considered of utmost importance. Vulnerable web applications are easy targets among hackers. Website security issues can lead to broken client relations, revoked licenses, and other legal actions. Vectors like a backdoor attack, SQL injection (SQLi), and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) are exploited to pilfer data or interrupt functions of web applications.
Website penetration testing is the most secure method of detecting flaws within your web application. Vulnerabilities in web applications can occur in various areas like SaaS applications, DBA tools (e.g., phpMyAdmin), or content management systems (e.g., WordPress).
