Blindspot WAAP offers a robust shield against prevalent digital threats and targets application-level vulnerabilities, including the top 10 risks pinpointed by OWASP. Some examples are:
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): A tactic where adversaries inject malicious scripts into authentic websites. Upon user visitation to these tainted sites, the malicious code executes in their web browsers, facilitating data theft or user impersonation by the attackers.
Application Layer DDoS Attacks: These denote DoS or DDoS assaults targeting the application layer, with common variants like HTTP/S floods, SSL-driven attacks, slowloris attacks, and brute force methods.
SQL Injection: Similar to XSS in execution, attackers exploit vulnerabilities to inject malicious SQL commands into an application, leading to unauthorized data access, modification, or deletion.
Zero-Day Attacks: Occur when malevolent entities leverage an undisclosed security lapse or software vulnerability before the developer releases a remedial patch.
