The march of new technology has, of course, continued apace, and this has given rise to specific new vulnerabilities and attacks. The ingenuity of hackers has also led to the development of new attack techniques, and new ways of exploiting old bugs.
But neither of these factors, technological or human, has created a revolution.
Web application security is a dynamic and exciting area to work in, but the bulk of what constitutes our accumulated wisdom has evolved slowly over many years, and would have been distinctively recognizable to practitioners working a decade or more ago. Most of the material in the first edition remains valid and current today.
For readers who have upgraded from the first edition and may feel disappointed by these numbers, you should take heart. If you have mastered all of the techniques described in the first edition, then you already have the majority of the skills and knowledge that you need. You can focus your reading on what is new in this second edition, and quickly learn about the areas of web application security that have changed in recent years.
One significant new feature of the second edition is the inclusion throughout the book of real examples of nearly all of the vulnerabilities that are covered.
Any place you see a Try it! There are several hundred of these labs, which you can work through at your own pace as you read the book.
The online labs are available on a subscription basis for a modest fee, to cover the costs of hosting and maintaining the infrastructure involved.
For readers wishing to focus their attention on what is new in the second edition, there follows a summary of the key areas where material has been added or rewritten.
In particular, the section on browser extension technologies has been largely rewritten to include more detailed guidance on generic approaches to bytecode decompilation and debugging, how to handle serialized data in common formats, and how to deal with common obstacles to your work, including non-proxy-aware clients and problems with SSL. The chapter also now covers Silverlight technology. It also contains new material on attacking encrypted tokens, including practical techniques for token tampering without knowing either the cryptographic algorithm or the encryption key being used.
It also describes some new tools and techniques that you can use to partially automate the frequently onerous task of testing access controls. The material in Chapters 9 and 10 has been reorganized to create more manageable chapters and a more logical arrangement of topics. As SQL injection vulnerabilities have become more widely understood and addressed, this material now focuses more on the practical situations where SQL injection is still to be found.
There are also minor updates throughout to reflect current technologies and attack methods, and there is a new section on using automated tools for exploiting SQL injection vulnerabilities. The material on LDAP injection has been largely rewritten to include more detailed coverage of specific technologies Microsoft Active Directory and OpenLDAP , as well as new techniques for exploiting common vulnerabilities. This chapter also now covers attacks against NoSQL.
With the increased usage of encryption to protect application data at rest, we also include an example of how to identify and exploit encryption oracles to decrypt encrypted data.
