Identify Code Injection Vulnerabilities with Kiuwan
Code injection attacks are some of the most common security flaws in app and software development, but there are ways to prevent and remediate these vulnerabilities in your code.
What is code injection?
Code injection is a general term for a type of software vulnerability where unvalidated input is evaluated by an application. It is fairly common on web applications that rely on user input through forms that lack appropriate input/output data validation. This flaw can be exploited by attackers by injecting malicious code in the language of the application into it, which will then be executed by the server-side interpreter for that language.
Consequences of code injection can be dire:
What differs code injection from command injection is that an attacker is only limited by the functionality of the injected language. If the language of the target application is Java, the injection is limited by what Java is capable of.
Types of code injection
There are multiple types of code injection vulnerabilities, some specific for certain languages or certain applications.
Here are a few well-known ones:
