You have been employed as an Analyst in a firm of industry analysts that provide advice to clients
on various aspects of technology (such as Gartner or Forrester).
You have been asked to write a report for corporate clients on the types of attacks that are made
against public web sites deployed by companies and how the code for the web sites should be
written to protect against attacks. For each type of attack, you need to:
a) Describe, using examples, how an application can be left vulnerable to attack and explain
how a malicious user could exploit these vulnerabilities to attack the site.
b) Explain, for applications written using PHP, the mechanisms that could be used to protect
web applications against such an attack.
Please note that you should only consider vulnerabilities that can be introduced into applications by
programmers who are not fully aware of the potential for attacks on poorly written applications and
now to prevent them. You are not to consider issues to do with web server or network
administration.
This is the first report for the company that you have been asked to do on your own and your
manager will be taking a close look at your report, including the sources you have used to support
your observations in your report. Therefore, you are expected to provide accurate citing and
referencing in your article. You have been asked to use the Harvard system of referencing to enable
the editors to check all facts and statements in your article easily.
The size of the report is to be no more than 1500 words. References and a Bibliography section are
not included in the word count.

INTRODUCTION

Network security becomes a perceptible issue these days for the organizations and companies
that deploy public websites. These websites could have sensitive data and information
regarding the company as well as customers or users. These days various newly introduced
web-based attacks are coming out. Thus the need arises to push technology further and
develop more secure and robust websites than before.
“No language can prevent insecure codes, although there are language features which could
aid or hinder a security-conscious developer.” (Shiflett October 2005)
