Some of the most serious security flaws on the Internet today are application-layer flaws in custom web applications. Such vulnerabilities undermine all other system hardening efforts. While techniques to exploit application-layer flaws are common among hackers, most security professionals have little experience with them. This book is a self-paced training guide that will help security professionals and web developers understand how many application-layer attacks work.

Some of the most serious security flaws on the Internet today are application-layer flaws in custom web applications. Such vulnerabilities undermine all other system hardening efforts. While techniques to exploit application-layer flaws are common among hackers, most security professionals have little experience with them.

This book is a self-paced training guide that will help security professionals and web developers understand how many application-layer attacks work. Through hands-on, step-by-step exercises readers get to see first hand how hackers pull off a variety of attacks, such as SQL Injection, Session Hijacking, OS Command Injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Parameter Tampering.

Additionally, the book features:

* Explanation of how HTTP based applications really work * The Web Hacker’s Toolbox showing you the tools you need and how to use them, including extensive coverage of Paros, the open source proxy tool * A systematic, repeatable process for examining web applications for security flaws even if you don’t have the source code

Available on this book’s download site:

* MasterBugs – a functional, real-world web application, used throughout the book * StealthVNC – a modification of the open-source VNC software used by the author to demonstrate how to assume full, graphical remote control of a target after exploiting various application-layer flaws * ZombieVM – a Linux virtual machine (for VMWare) with software containing flaws examined in the book

Isn’t it about time you caught up with the hackers?

Web Hacker Boot Camp can serve as a very good introduction to the world of web application testing and SQL injection. The book is technically accurate but not up to date with the "latest" tactics and techniques. It more than adequately covers the basics that someone new to the field would need to get started.

You get a short introduction to networking (not that useful), a very good introduction to how the web works, specifically [...] cookies, user authentication methods, state management (useful), an assessment methodology (nothing new), a large chunk of content on using paros proxy that was useful but I would have preferred to have seen him using a proxy that could do more like webscarab but paros gets the job done. You get a block on setting up your lab environment, but by far the most redeeming part of the book is getting the masterbugs application to practice on. While not a true real life web application it affords you the opportunity to play with paros, practice some simple SQL injection (Ch 6), practice some simple session hijacking (Ch 7), parameter tampering (Ch 8), Cross-Site Scripting (Ch 9), and OS Command Injection (Ch 10). The book wraps up with Cryptography 101 (somewhat useful) and mitigation strategies (not that useful).

What I liked best about the book was the masterbugs sample application that runs on Windows 2000 with MS SQL Server. The set up instructions were accurate and only took a few minutes to set up. The labs worked as described in the book, which is refreshing. The masterbugs application can also be used to play with some of the other open source web application testing tools like nikto and sqlninja.

What I didn't like about the book was that I thought it was light on content for the price (236 pages, numbered to 218) for approximately 40 dollars and I think more time could have been spent on SQL injection (more background, different types, and methods).

Would I recommend the book? Like I said, the sample application is worth the price but it really depends on the skill level of the purchaser on how much they would get out of it. If you have read and understand a lot of the SQL Injection papers out there and you're comfortable with SQL Injection sample sites like [...] you may be able to pass but I found it a useful addition to my security library.

I'm a sales guy for an Internet Security firm, however, my co-workers call me "hybrid" because I'm too technical to be compared to the average sales guy and not technical enough to be a full-fledged engineer.

So here's why I was pleasantly surprised by Web Hacker Boot Camp...I bought it because we have a product which specifically combats the type of hacking Quakenbush discusses. I expected to be fairly overwhelmed and just give the book to my Security Engineer. What I found was that I now understand my own product better after reading Quakenbush's book.

There are parts that are too technical for me to be able to follow (the "good stuff") but there are many introductory portions that don't presume where you're starting from. It was written so that I wasn't insulted when being informed of something I all ready knew, but that took me places I'd also never gone before.

Don't get me wrong...overall this is a technical book, however, it is valuable also to the dabbler, the hobby-interested, the student, and particularly to those working on products related specifically to web security.

I highly recommend it to both the "geeks" and the "sales-pukes". If we all figured out how to communicate in this style, the customers of the world (which includes you and me when you think about it) would be much better served, and ultimately...safer.

well I buyed this one, and I have to say I lost a bit of money.

the author knows very little of what he is talking about, and that little that he knows he is not able to explain in a usefull way. Plus all the book is focused on a hand-made web application that has NOTHING to do with real world scenarios. Do yourself a nice thing and look around for something better.

Some usefull info can be found here only for people that are beginners with browsers usage.
