To begin with I'll use a story. How many have heard of the company Capital One?
Whoa! That many people?
Well back in 2019. Capital One had a rather unfortunate incident.
Capital One faced a massive data breach that affected millions of people.
Yes, class the data breach was one of the largest to have ever occurred.
Then she came across a peculiar looking web application.
A hacker by the name of Paige Thompson was doing her thing. You know, hacking!
Anybody wants to guess what was off about it? Well the application had a misconfigured firewall such that it allowed the hacker to execute commands of the server.
By executing commands on this server the hacker was able to gain credit informationfor clients who had joined between 2005 and 2019
100 million US citizens and 6 million Canadian citizens were affected.
The hacker was later arrested by the FBI but Capital One had to compensate their customers heavily.
Moral of the story. Keep your web applications safe.
