    Common ways I know of defacing a site:

    1. Cross site scripting

    2. SQL injection

    3. Weak input validation

    4. Weak permissions

    5. Weak passwords

    6. Server configuration/poorly updated software

    The list goes on and on

    Hi all,
    u should look owsp top ten (http://www.owasp.org/documentation/topten.html). It provides awareness for web application developers to look into there code for such vulnerabilities.

    Thanks

    I really should read about cross site scripting, never really come up against it before.

    The easiest thing to do is show you.

    You should have put that post in "technical humour"...........ANKIT FADIA a legend in the imagination of Indian hack journalists. The useless punk didn't even have the good manners to give credit to the people he cut and pasted from

    also reply by Mr. Milner is totally rubbish
    I Know i am not a total newbe when it comes to this i was just wanted to know about web site hacking which is something i know nothing about, But i do know a fair amount about network hacking ie. hacking for inside the network to the other machines but i have been thinking about puting up a web page server on my network and trying to attack that instead of other machines so i am just trying to find out about it.
