Business Social Network "Best Retailer" Security Audit

Our client's product is a business network that streamlines the process of creating contacts. It serves as a pivotal platform for individuals to discover new professional connections, promote their unique products, and offer distinct services.

The main objective of the project was the need to ensure the seamless operation of this web application across diverse browsers. To achieve this goal we conducted an in-depth functional and cross-browser testing, committing to two main aspects:

1. Guaranteeing consistent cross-browser rendering across all web pages.
2. Maintaining the utmost quality and integrity of the website.

Recognizing the importance of user-centric design, our specialists also delved into usability testing to amplify the application's efficiency and reduce the learning curve for end users.

Aligning with standards from the Web Application Security Consortium, we also conducted a comprehensive security audit for this business network. During the audir, we thoroughly examined a spectrum of vulnerability classes, including:

  • Authentication, covering Brute Force, Insufficient Authentication, and Weak Password Recovery Validation.
  • Authorization, encompassing Credential/Session Prediction, Insufficient Authorization, Insufficient Session Expiration, and Session Fixation.
  • Client-side Attacks, highlighting risks like Content Spoofing, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), HTTP Response Splitting, and the significant Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF).
  • Command Execution, delving into vulnerabilities such as Format String Attack, CRLF Injection, OS Commanding, SQL Injection, SSI Injection, and XPath Injection.
  • Information Disclosure, assessing Directory Indexing, Web Server/Application Fingerprinting, Information Leakage, Path Traversal, and Predictable Resource Location.
  • Logical Attacks, addressing Abuse of Functionality, Denial of Service, and Insufficient Anti-automation.
