The "Top Ten" is a list of the most serious and prevalent security risks that exist for web applications today. As web applications continue to grow in number and popularity, it becomes increasingly important to understand the security risks that are present in these applications. These risks include things like Injection Attacks, Security Misconfiguration, Broken Authentication, XML Attacks, Cross-Site Scripting and many more!
