Covered is detecting, investigating, exploiting, and eliminating vulnerabilities in Web applications as well as errors such as PHP source code injection, SQL injection, and XSS. The most common vulnerabilities in PHP and Perl scripts and methods of exploiting these weaknesses are described, information on writing intersite scripts and secure systems for the hosted sites, creating secure authorization systems, and bypassing authorization.
