    • This lab covers multiple secure coding errors commonly found in Python, including deserialization and XML based attacks.

  • Common Attack Types – HTML & SQL Injections Lab — 00:30:00
    • In this lab you will walkthrough an example of both HTML and SQL injections.

      HTML injections are vulnerabilities created from poor coding techniques and failure to sanitize user input that allow attackers to inject malicious payloads into the website’s HTML code and modify its content. Based on the vulnerability, an attacker can change a few code lines, add entire forms that can then be used to trick users into providing sensitive information or change the website’s entire layout.

      SQL injection is a web security vulnerability that permits an adversary to inject malicious SQL statements in the queries that an application makes to its database. It allows an unauthorized entity to view data to which they should not have access, like other users’ information
