    Web Application Security: Challenges Old and New

    The nature and wide variety of security vulnerabilities to be found within web applications mean that, despite typically forming the majority of a host's total attack surface, they cannot be secured by simple firewall rules or simple vendor software patches. Recent trends in application development, namely rich HTML5 applications, have opened up new attack vectors which usually go under the radar of developers (such as cross-origin communication), and this situation is compounded by the fact that traditional web application vulnerability scanning techniques are no longer viable for systems such a single page web applications built upon modern frameworks such as AngularJS. Moreover, classical vectors such as basic Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection are still being underestimated and abused to devastating affect despite being covered extensively over the years in security literature.
