VB2019 paper: Catch me if you can: detection of injection exploitation by validating query and API integrity

Posted by    on   Jan 6, 2020

Any web app that relies on some kind of user input is potentially vulnerable to some kind of command injection, be it MySQL, NoSQL or OS command injection. Indeed, OWASP lists this as one of the topmost security risks.

In a paper presented at VB2019 in London, Prismo Systems researchers Abhishek Singh and Ramesh Mani discussed code injection vulnerabilities and presented a tool that could detect this vulnerability class.
