Quite a big number of web applications remains potentially vulnerable to standard attacks due to a lack of proper test methodology. It is hard to estimate what percentage of successful hackers attacks might be blocked, but a good thoughtful pentesting strategy may significantly reduce attackers chances.

We present Web App Pentesting Compendium containing the most popular threads and discussions which have ever been published in our Magazine. It is a revealing publication with 29 highly specialistic articles from various fields.


Open Source Web Application Security Testing Tools
By Vinodh Velusamy
Author shows us the significance of Open Source Web Application Security Testing Tools. As he claims „When you choose and use good tools, you’ll know it. Amazingly, you’ll minimize your time and effort installing them, running your tests, reporting your results – everything from start to finish. Most importantly, with a good web vulnerability scanner you’ll be able to maximize the number of legitimate vulnerabilities discovered to help reduce the risks associated with your information systems. At the end of the day and over the long haul, this will add up to considerable business value you can’t afford to overlook”.

Shell of the Future is a Reverse Web Shell handler. It can be used to hijack sessions where JavaScript can be injected using XSS or through the browser’s address bar. It makes use of HTML5′s Cross Origin Requests and can bypass anti-session hijacking measures like Http-Only cookies and IP address-Session ID binding.It has been designed to be used as a proof of concept to demonstrate the impact of XSS vulnerability in a penetration test with the same ease as getting an alert box to pop-up.

Fuzzing for Free
By Mrityunjay Gautam
As a developer working on a product release, we tend to re-use most of the legacy code from the
previous release and then work on the new features and bug-fixes only. As a QA resource, we would
be using the same “conformance test suite” or the same “stress test suite” to ensure that the new
builds are working as expected. In this article the author gives us the good insight into the theory of
the art of fuzzing.

Introduction to exploit automation with Pmcma, Part I
By Jonathan Brossard
Determining exploitability is hard, writing exploits is hard. In fact, due to theoretical limitations
hopefully known to the reader of this paper (aka: halting point problem), they are two sides of the
same coin. Proving unexploitability is provably unfeasible in the general case, and practically for
the vast majority of computer programs actually used nowadays. So what you can get at best is a it’s
not doable given the state of the art of exploitation. Public knowledge, common sense… In this
article the author made a serious efforts to provide you all the details concerning Pmcma tool,
released at the Black Hat US conference this year.
