Website Penetration Testing

In today's world, web penetration testing has become more relevant due to the people dependent on web apps for every sensitive information of daily life. With the growth in its demand come the hidden security flaws, human error and complexity. To reduce such security flaws you need a best defense i.e. VAPT Solutions. We provide you with efficient solutions of loopholes with the help of the expert team and make our clients aware of the breaches.

Why Web Penetration Testing

Testing is necessary as the same way the cars are tested by manufacturers for safety purpose to check it against an active attack. Web Penetration testing does the same for the security of your websites by using technologies and tools to take precautionary measures from the attack done by criminals and attackers.

How we help

We provide customized website penetration testing services depending upon the needs of our customer which helps in building your organization a more resilient security posture. We make sure to unearth the root cause of the website security issue and fix the problems.

Our Approach

Our approach for website penetration testing is using black box and white box penetration testing depending upon client’s requirements. We support both black box and white box penetration testing.

Black Box Penetration testing

Black box testing method tests your application with the perspective of attacker or hacker prior to seeking knowledge of your systems. In Black box penetration testing, we don’t have any idea about client’s internal structure. We just check your web-application inputs and analysis the output response. So we have limited knowledge about target systems hence vulnerabilities may remain undiscovered for internal services.

White Box Penetration testing

White box testing is known to be the most efficient method of discovering bugs, security breaches and other vulnerabilities in the source code. Generally, these types of bugs are overlooked in the black box testing which has the ability to cause great effects in the application. VAPT Solutions takes this as an important measure and has designed the methodology accordingly for the deep analyzation of critical components.

Our Methodology

VAPT Solutions use standard and latest methodologies for website penetration testing like OWASP top 10 2017; SANS 20 etc. We use both automated (20%) and manual (80%) website penetration testing. For manual penetration testing, we strictly use OWASP Testing Guide checklist.

1. OWASP Top-10:

OWASP provides practical and unbiased data about the application to provide awareness about the most vulnerable and common risk to the developers. OWASP top 10 is the industry’s best methodology and almost used by every organization. VAPT Solutions is also use OWASP top 10 for website penetration testing.


The injection takes place when the attackers inject a small percentage of code which misleads the application to perform unintended actions. Some well -known injections are SQL, LDAP which are inserted against the directory systems.

A2- Broken authentication

Weak authentication and management controls give a golden chance to hackers to easily access your data by hiding their real identities. You need strong control over the management and be ensured about the person behind the keyboards.

A3- Sensitive data exposure

If the unintended user data is displayed, it can create a big mess for the operator of the web application. To exploit this risk OWASP removes the insecure data and also recommends the precautionary steps to encrypt or discard the data.

A4- XML external entities (XXE)

This is new vulnerability introduced by OWASP. XML files are used to upload the external files in an XML document. With the help of OWASP security guidelines, the vulnerability can be made extinct through the configuration of the processor.

A5- Broken access control

Broken access control occurs when the hacker gains access to control over the user's data and misleads accordingly. It could be said as a combination of “Missing function level access control” and “Insecure direct object references”.

A6- Security misconfiguration

Security misconfiguration related to that application which is incomplete or inappropriately managed. It is a common risk which can be easily detectable and can occur in any part or level of the application. The OWASP knows the exact ways to remove such issues.

A7- XSS vulnerability

This is one of the common issues but the detection of it is easy and can be remediating by separating the untrusted user from active content. According to OWASP, it does occur when your web application trust user inputs and accepts all input data.

A8-Insecure deserialization

Through the process of deserialization, an object can be turned into data. Later the data can be sent and stored somewhere which leads to recreation of data in another system. Through OWASP the untrusted deserialized objects could be restricted.

A9- Using components with known vulnerabilities

Open source development practices have come up with many new innovations along with the reduction in development cost. With this, software may be vulnerable, unsupported, or out of date. OWASP guidelines make sure to remove such vulnerabilities.

A10- Insufficient logging and monitoring

Just by solving the logging and monitoring problems one can neutralize the effect of attackers. Of course, it has made the vulnerabilities easy to detect and determine the effect of damage but the problem remains common.

2. SANS 25:

It is a list of top 20 dangerous software vulnerabilities which are found to be most widespread and common. Though they are easy to detect and remove the risk arises due to its allowance for stealing the whole data or making the software non-functional. Through SANS 20, customers can rely their trust on more secure software to protect their data.


After website penetration testing, your website will be risk free from OWASP vulnerabilities. Our team makes sure your database and websites are secure and safe by identify the risk and exploit the vulnerabilities by keeping ourselves one step ahead from the hacker's approach.
