Check out this bit about a security flaw recently revealed on Sears’ Web site. As the researcher alluded to, hacking and security are way more than people exploiting known software flaws. There are so many other security issues with Web applications. I see it all the time when doing my manual analyses on Web sites/applications. The sky is the limit for these business logic vulnerabilities and I suspect it’ll always be that way. I love being a consultant who performs Web security assessments – there’s always something new and challenging!
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
