Web Application Security
Web application security is a branch of information security that deals specifically with security of websites, web applications and web services. At a high level, web application security draws on the principles of application security but applies them specifically to internet and web systems.
The majority of web application attacks occur through cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection attacks which typically are made possible by flawed coding and failure to sanitize application inputs and outputs. These attacks are always ranked on top 25 most dangerous programming errors
