Web Application Security Assessment using Burp Community Edition | Part - 2 | Audit Guidelines | High Impact Web Vulnerability


The blog [Part-2] basically covers how to check the web application vulnerability with Burp Community Edition. This blog will be very helpful while performing the web application security assessment( VAPT) manually. In this part of the blog, we will cover a few vulnerabilities with High impact severity. So here is the blog.

 

IP Spoofing (Bypass Whitelisting)

Audit Guideline

  1. Try to access the application from any network except the whitelisted one.
  2. Capture the base request in the burp community and send the request to the repeater.
  3. Add X-Forwarded-For in the request and the IP that has whitelisted for application access.
  4. Observe the application will response normally. Hence,bypassed the whitelisting to access the application.
