OWASP Bricks – Modular Deliberately Vulnerable Web Application

Use Netsparker


Bricks, a deliberately vulnerable web application built on PHP & MySQL focuses on variations of commonly seen application security vulnerabilities & exploits, which can be exploited using tools (Mantra & ZAP). The mission is to ‘break the bricks’.

Road Map

  1. Demonstrate maximum variations of most common vulnerabilities
  2. Help people to learn the need of secure codding practices and SSDLC
  3. Attract people to design more bricks
  4. Become a test bed for analyzing the performance of web application security scanners.
  5. Help people learn the manual method of testing the applications
  6. Demonstrate the possibilities of various security tools and techniques
  7. Become a platform to teach web application security in a class room/lab environment.

It’s a great way to learn the basics of web security, both from a developers perspective and from someone interesting in learning pen testing for web apps, if you want to check out more projects similar to Bricks, there a whole bunch here:
