5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book with great coverage of Web apps threats, Jan. 11 2010

This review is from: The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Discovering and Exploiting Security Flaws (Paperback)
Written for a hacker? Not really! The book succeeds at showing Web application vulnerabilities and how to effectively defend from the possible attacks these would allow.

We are using it in our company as the guideline for securing an important Web application and it has covered all issues automated test tools from Rational reported.

I find the book is very well written and explains concepts with clarity, I just could not stop reading it, it's a really interesting book!

This review is from: The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Discovering and Exploiting Security Flaws (Paperback)
This is a great resource for anyone looking for an introduction to web application security and no clue where to start. It begins with the background information you will need to work through many of the techniques that are introduced in the later chapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contains some priceless tricks, Jan. 28 2010

This review is from: The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Discovering and Exploiting Security Flaws (Paperback)
I found section 5.10.4 on page 696 most interesting.

This is especially important since the cookie path defaults to the current location without the trailing slash ([...])

I was able to reproduce this behavior on IE6, IE7, IE8, Safari 3 and even Netscape Communicator 4.79 :-)

However with Firefox or Chrome, cookies set on path "/bank" cannot be accessed from resources located under "/banktest/".
