    • Because of the need to be public-facing and the information they provide, websites and web servers are a common target of attacks. The path to exploiting these attacks is most commonly created by logical errors in development or using vulnerable software to aid in building up the website. What adds to the pool of possible weak points is the need to integrate several technologies to create an interactive and responsive user experience, usage of legacy systems and failure to keep up with security patches. All these factors amount to a vast number of threats, all specific to different versions and programming languages.
