Rails Broken Object Level Authorization Guide

Broken object-level authorization, or BOLA, is a specific attack that targets weak or poorly implemented authorization mechanisms. It exploits endpoints that allow user input to retrieve objects (data) and have no user authorization validation. In essence, an attacker can exploit your application whenever it doesn’t properly confirm that the user requesting a resource has ownership of the said object. In this article from Juan Reyes on Stackhawk’s blog, you can learn about rails broken object-level authorization vulnerabilities and how bad actors use them to exploit your systems.

NodeJS Broken Object Level Authorization Guide

Keeping our systems secured and robust can be challenging when facing so many threats on a daily basis. One such threat, called broken object-level authorization, was referred to as the number one threat APIs worldwide face today by the OWASP security organization. This article from Juan Reyes on Stackhawk’s blog aims to give you the knowledge and expertise necessary to mitigate this threat. To achieve that, we will be examining what broken object-level authorization is, how attackers abuse these vulnerabilities, and what we can do about it.

Golang XML External Entities Guide: Examples and Prevention

XML External Entity (XXE) attacks can lead to a denial of service, loss of confidential information, and service outages due. XXE attacks help hackers snoop on systems and compromise critical data. They’re a form of injection attack that takes advantage of applications that fail to protect themselves from malicious XML documents. Let’s look at Golang XML External Entities and how Go protects you from this kind of attack. Check out this post from Eric Goebelbecker on Stackhawk’s blog for more information.

Laravel Broken Object Level Authorization Guide

Broken object level authorization (BOLA) is a common website vulnerability. It happens when a web application or API fails to check user entitlements properly. As a result, attackers can access sensitive website data with little or no website permissions, leading to serious security breaches. All web developers need to be aware of BOLA and how to prevent it. This article from Eric Goebelbecker on Stackhawk’s blog will look at examples of broken object level authorization (BOLA) problems in Laravel applications and how you can fix and prevent them.

Lua CSRF Protection Guide: Examples and How to Enable

Now we can do almost everything online, and sending a check seems unthinkable when we simply pay a bill or complete a purchase with a tap on a screen or click a mouse. But that convenience doesn’t come without significant risk. Users have to ask if they should tap on that button and you, the developer, have to make sure your buttons are safe. Are you protecting your users from Cross-site request forgery (CSRF)? CSRF is a type of attack where a hacker figures out how to get a user to execute a dangerous web query. This attack is also known as XSRF, Session Riding, Hostile Linking, and several other names. In this post on Stackhawk’s blog from Eric Goebelbecker, you can learn about CSRF attacks and how you can protect your Lua web applications from them.

.NET Broken Authentication Guide: Examples and Prevention

An authentication mechanism ensures that only a verified user can access information and privileges on a web application. However, it’s “broken” when an attacker successfully bypasses the process and impersonates the user. Essentially, the attacker skips the login security and gains access to the privileges the hacked user has.In this article from Juan Reyes on Stawkhawk’s blog, it’ll address broken authentication, explore the intricacies of authentication, and show you how to provide appropriate security mechanisms for your website.

Golang Broken Authentication Guide: Examples and Prevention

Security is important in the software industry. With appropriate security, you can prevent information theft and other cybercrimes. One important aspect of security is to verify the identity of all entities so that intruders can’t get access to the application. This is exactly what authentication is all about. It ensures users can’t access information stored in the application until they can prove that they’re who they claim to be. In this article on Stackhawk’s blog, Ukpai Ugochi explains authentication and how to prevent broken authentication.

Rails Broken Authentication Guide: Examples and Prevention

In terms of cybersecurity, authentication and authorization are two of our platforms’ most significant security aspects. But, as we know, protecting our applications and our users’ data is a battle on many fronts. No doors should be left unprotected. Nevertheless, you’ll spend most of your time and effort securing your website’s main avenue of access. That’s why understanding a subject like broken authentication is critical to offering a robust level of protection. This article on Stackhawk’s blog from Juan Reyes aims to explore the subject of broken authentication in the context of Ruby on Rails.
