Simple Password Generator
As a part of my weekly coding challenges I decided to create simple password generating program that allows an user to create strong and unique passwords depending on the wanted legth. It's great way to improve your programming skills and problem solving. Let's see how it works!
Web for Pentester
Today we're going to continue our journey through the word of web application security - more accurately XSS exercises from PentesterLab. It's great way to practice what we have learned so far and also - good challenge. Let's jump into the first one!
Distributed Denial of Service Attack
Denial of Service attacks (DOS) are one of the simplest ways to paralylze network infrastructure of the victim. Although many attacks are connected with destroying data or stealing credentials (or any kind of sensitive information), DOS attacks can cause equally big financial loss. Properly prepared, in particular Distributed Denial of Service, can cause catastrophic harm to the victim company. In addition - even though they are one of the earliest kinds of network attacks - they are getting more and more sophisticated and harder to prevent.
Cross Site Scripting
Cross Site Scripting (XSS) is a name of one of the most common vulnerability in web applications. It's third in the list of the newest OWASP Top Ten document so it's essential to know how it works.
Powefull, right? But enough story time for today, let's jump into some technical details.
