New Version Released: Application Vulnerability Scan

Application Vulnerability Scan


In the course of our work Boltonshied experts often happen to test the same system again and again, although a longer period of time passes between the individual assessments sometimes. It is also rather common that the tested system itself significantly changes between two tests. In this case study we share a short description of our application vulnerability scan where unfortunately the new version of the application included a severe vulnerability.

Our client has developed several popular web services. They decided to bring the authorization of their applications to a common platform and that is why they opted for the use of the OAuth 2.0 open standard. Their applications have proven to be particularly safe so far, that is why they thought it would be enough to perform an application vulnerability scan of the new application version after it went live.
