In the last few years, the popularity of web-based applications has grown tremendously. Since the advent of the World Wide Web (WWW), the users' routine activities in the banking, finance and insurance sectors have been moved to web based applications. These web applications deal with sensitive data. Most of the web applications have security vulnerabilities that may be exploited by attackers. Majority of these vulnerabilities are due to lack of proper validation of user's input. These web vulnerabilities include SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). As a result web-based applications face threats like information disclosure and misuse of information.
