Description

Vulnerability Types In this years Advent of PHP Application Vulnerabilities (APAV), we examined 36 critical security issues which were detected in 19 different PHP applications by our code analysis solution RIPS. We presented a multitude of critical security issues found in widely-used open-source software. All issues were detected by our innovative static code analysis tool RIPS and were presumably missed by other tools throughout the past years. In our calendar posts, we focused on interesting rather than easy to exploit samples and straight-forward issues in order to demonstrate the vast possibilities that attackers have for exploiting a web application.
