Common Software Security Flaws

User Authentication
Issues

Despite best intentions, passwords and user authentication are often security risks for software.

Sensitive Data
Exposure

Protecting sensitive information, including passwords, credit card details and payment activities is critical for mobile applications.

Broken Access Controls

Incorrect account configurations or missing account restrictions can lead to users accessing sensitive data for accounts not associated with their log-in criteria.

URL Manipulation

URL manipulation can pose a threat to your system if your application features important ID and keys within any URL. These include but are not limited to session tokens, cookies, hidden fields and session IDs.

Cross Site
Scripting

Cross-site scripting can pose a threat to your application if your system supports untrusted data on a webpage without proper validation.
