Even the best websites get hacked. As the technology for securing websites and applications is constantly improving, hackers get more creative and aggressive in finding ways to breach.
Hackers generally use one of two main ways to get access to your site: they either look for a technical vulnerability to exploit, like a bug in the code, or they get the credentials of someone with access. Taking advantage of web application code vulnerabilities takes specialized skills. So, while this still happens, it is not as popular as credential stealing.
This eBook helps shed some light on what is inside the mind of those who want to hack your site and the techniques they use. With this understanding you can improve your web application security posture and reduce the likelihood of a breach.
