Types of Hack Attacks

Hello Friends,I hope you all fine.Yesterday I was li'l busy so couldn't post any article.
Well Today I'm sharing some hacking attacks which a hacker used to hack Websites.


- Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

    XSS flaws occur whenever an application takes user supplied data and sends it to a web browser without first validating or encoding that content. XSS allows attackers to execute script in the victim's browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, possibly introduce worms, etc.



 - SQL Injection Flaws

    Injection flaws, particularly SQL injection, are common in web applications. Injection occurs when user-supplied data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker's hostile data tricks the interpreter into executing unintended commands or changing data.any  idiot can do this :p



   - Malicious File Execution

 Code vulnerable to remote file inclusion (RFI) allows attackers to include hostile code and data, resulting in devastating attacks, such as total server compromise. Malicious file execution attacks affect PHP, XML and any framework which accepts filenames or files from users.
- Insecure Direct Object Reference
 A direct object reference occurs when a developer exposes a reference to an internal implementation object, such as a file, directory, database record, or key, as a URL or form parameter. Attackers can manipulate those references to access other objects without authorization.
  - Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
                                        
A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim's browser to send a pre-authenticated request to a vulnerable web application, which then forces the victim's browser to perform a hostile action to the benefit of the attacker. CSRF can be as powerful as the web application that it attacks.


 - Information Leakage and Improper Error Handling
Applications can unintentionally leak information about their configuration, internal workings, or violate privacy through a variety of application problems. Attackers use this weakness to steal sensitive data, or conduct more serious attacks.

- Broken Authentication and Session Management

    Account credentials and session tokens are often not properly protected. Attackers compromise passwords, keys, or authentication tokens to assume other users' identities.

     - Insecure Cryptographic Storage

    Web applications rarely use cryptographic functions properly to protect data and credentials. Attackers use weakly protected data to conduct identity theft and other crimes, such as credit card fraud.

     - Insecure Communications

    Applications frequently fail to encrypt network traffic when it is necessary to protect sensitive communications.

- Failure to Restrict URL Access
                                             
    Frequently, an application only protects sensitive functionality by preventing the display of links or URLs to unauthorized users. Attackers can use this weakness to access and perform unauthorized operations by accessing those URLs directly.



Hope you like the efforts.
Enjoy and don't forget to share ....

Does your website have a contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an email.
I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.
