OWASP Reshuffles Its Top 10 List, Adds New Categories


The Open Web Application Security Project reshuffles its list of top threats and released its draft for 2021, putting broken access controls and cryptographic failures at the top and creating three new risk categories.  The list, which is updated every three or four years using data analysis, surveys, and public comment, contained a number of surprises. Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), which accounts for about one in every five disclosed vulnerabilities, disappeared from the list, subsumed by the expanded category of Injection flaws. Three new categories were also added, including Insecure Design, which debuts in the No. 4 spot on the list.

K2’s CTO and Co-Founder Jayant Shukla was tapped for commentary on the release of the draft of the Top Web Application Risks.

K2 CYBER SECURITY

K2 Cyber Security delivers the Next Generation Application Security Platform to secure web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks in OWASP Top 10 and provides exploitable vulnerability detection during pre-production. K2’s Platform is deployed on production servers for runtime protection of applications and on pen-testing/pre-production/QA servers for interactive application security testing to identify the location of the vulnerable code. K2’s solution generates almost no false positives, eliminates breaches due to zero-day attacks, detects attacks missed by traditional security tools like Web Application Firewalls and host based EDR, finds missed exploitable vulnerabilities and dramatically reduces security cost.
