What are the MOST Critical Web Vulnerabilities in 2019?


So what is wild on the web this year? Need to know about the most critical web vulnerabilities in 2019 to protect your organization?

What are the MOST Critical Web Vulnerabilities in 2019

Well luckily for you Acunetix compiles an annual web application vulnerability report which is a fairly hefty piece of analysis on data gathered from the previous year. This is compiled from the automated web and network perimeter scans run on the Acunetix Online platform, over a 12 month period, across more than 10,000 scan targets.

To be more specific:

  • 67,355 Network scans
  • 10,000 Scan targets
  • 76,686 Web scans

It was found that as many that almost half of the scanned websites contain high severity vulnerabilities with almost all containing medium severity vulnerabilities.

Although SQL Injection vulnerabilities are on the slight decline, XSS vulnerabilities, vulnerable JavaScript libraries, and WordPress related issues were found to each claim a significant 30% of the sampled targets.

2019 High Severity Vulnerabilities

What are the most critical web vulnerabilities in 2019?

The report gives you the low down on:

  • Which vulnerabilities are rising and falling in frequency
  • Current security concerns, such as the increasing complexity of new apps, the accelerating rate of new versions, and the problem of scale
  • Changes in threat landscape from both the client and server sides
  • The four major stages of vulnerability analysis
  • Vulnerability findings by type and severity
  • An analysis of each discovered vulnerability in terms of how it works, its statistical status and pointers for remediation.

So, top line message – keep yourself safe!

GoBuster – Directory/File & DNS Busting Tool in Go


GoBuster is a Go-based tool used to brute-force URIs (directories and files) in web sites and DNS subdomains (with wildcard support) – essentially a directory/file & DNS busting tool.

GoBuster - Directory/File & DNS Busting Tool in Go


The author built YET ANOTHER directory and DNS brute forcing tool because he wanted..

  • … something that didn’t have a fat Java GUI (console FTW).
  • … to build something that just worked on the command line.
  • … something that did not do recursive brute force.
  • … something that allowed me to brute force folders and multiple extensions at once.
  • … something that compiled to native on multiple platforms.
  • … something that was faster than an interpreted script (such as Python).
  • … something that didn’t require a run-time.
  • … use something that was good with concurrency (hence Go).
  • … to build something in Go that wasn’t totally useless.

Using GoBuster Directory/File & DNS Busting Tool

BDFProxy – Patch Binaries via MiTM – BackdoorFactory + mitmproxy


BDFProxy allows you to patch binaries via MiTM with The Backdoor Factory combined with mitmproxy enabling on the fly patching of binary downloads (software updates for example) from vendors that don’t validate data integrity.

BDFProxy - Patch Binaries via MITM - BackdoorFactory + mitmProxy


The Backdoor Factory allows you to patch binaries with shell-code so combining that with mitmproxy, which is a Python proxy-server that can catch HTTP, change traffic on the fly, replay traffic, decode and render primitive data types – gives you BDFProxy.

A lot of security tool websites still serve binaries via non-SSL/TLS means – plus imagine how many do it outside of the security space (e.g. sysinternals, malwarebytes, sourceforce, wireshark etc).

BDFProxy – Patch Binaries via MiTM – Installation and Requirements

Tested on all Kali Linux builds, whether a physically beefy laptop, a Raspberry Pi, or a VM, each can run BDFProxy.

Requires:

  • Pefile – most recent
  • ConfigObj
  • mitmProxy – Kali Build .10
  • BDF – most current
  • Capstone (part of BDF)

To install on Kali:

Docker:

Testing:

Suppose you want to use your browser with Firefox and FoxyProxy to connect to test your setup.

Update your config as follows:

Configure FoxyProxy to use BDFProxy as a proxy, default port in the config is 8080.

BDFProxy – Patch Binaries via MiTM – Logging

There is logging in BDFProxy, the proxy window will quickly fill with massive amounts of cat links depending on the client you are testing. Use tail -f proxy.log to see what is getting patched and blocked by your blacklist settings. However, keep an eye on the main proxy window if you have chosen to patch binaries manually, things move fast and behind the scenes there is multi-threading of traffic, but the initial requests and responses are locking for your viewing pleasure.

You can download BDFProxy here:

BDFProxy-0.3.9.zip
