Detection of Security Attacks and their Countermeasures in ASP.NET Web Applications
The Web is a vast and powerful attack surface on which the attackers employ their malicious code to exploit the vulnerabilities in web applications. The research reports indicate that more than 80 percent of the web applications are vulnerable to security threats. These security vulnerabilities may not be seen by the owner of the web applications. In this paper, the authors present some countermeasures to deal with the two top most security attacks in ASP.NET web applications such as SQL injection and cross site scripting.
