If you have the basic understanding of security and you want to be a web pen-tester / hacker. This is the book you want to read.+ Technical just like the way I like books+ Explains many methods you couldn't possible imagine before.+ Step by Step explanation+ New ideas and exploitation methods- Labs cost 7$ / Hr ---> Not much practice; however you can find many free practice labs (e.g. pentesterlab)- Focuses on Burp Proxy only -- there are many other tools- a bit outdated ! <- many of vulne [...]

This is a necessary read for anyone looking to get a better idea of web application security, particularly those who haven't had a background in the security field at all. It's a long read, and not one that I think people can sit down to and push through quickly. I got through this while reading a few others at the same time.It's fairly well edited with just a few simple mistakes. The exercises are interesting, though they feel a little laborious by the end.I enjoyed reading it and would recomme [...]

Really good book, I learned a ton and it's great for creativity as well.I remember waking up everyday for ~2-3 weeks and reading this for 1 hour straight at 5:30-6am, just to finish the toughest thing first thing in the day haha. Very hard to read, looking back I have no idea how I did it :)

Pretty much the definitive guide to testing and defending web apps. Anyone looking to enter the field can't do much better than reading this book cover to cover.

Well this was a really long journey. This book has a massive number of pages, about 900. It took me a month to read all the contents here and the conclusion is, this is just the begining. The technics used to hack into web applications, and in a more general perspective, computer systems are many, furthermore the can and should be combined to optimize the effectiveness of your attack. This book introduces you into the world of hacking in a web application perspective. You should be advised that [...]

The content is good. Though is too lengthy and fuzzy. I would suggest to start reading with the last chapter to get an overall idea what will be in the book. I gave it three stars because I think the book could be presented in more easily digestible way. If you plan to read, you should read this book. Suggested.

I bought this book quite a while back, but only started it a few months ago. Being almost 10 years old, some of the information is a bit outdated, but the general principles still old true.Web Applications are omnipresent: be them to manage your bank account, order stuff, keep in touch with friends or seek for a job, chances are this is through one of these. For most of them, security is an absolute requirement, and we trust the various controls to protect our money, credit card and personal inf [...]

Good overview of common web application vulnerabilities and how to protect or exploit them. A little heavy on tools and promoting the author's paid practice website, but the content is very clear and accessible.Definitely go through Natas at OverTheWire to apply the concepts after reading.

A+. Required reading for webapp pentesting, no exceptions. Though it is often a bit wordy to convey simple messages.

This book is a little long winded and a bit dry, so based just on the writing of the book I would have given it two stars. However the book shines in that it has an unconventional perspective and it stands by this perspective. It is written as guide to attacking applications, not securing them. I thought that would be a gimmick and each chapter would be 1/5 how to hack and 4/5 how to defend, but no quite the opposite is true. I am not sure it is the greatest approach to learning the material, bu [...]

Good too much advertisingOverall, there was a lot of information. I hated the constant use burp suite for this and that. SHUT UP ABOUT BURP SUITE!!! Also, all over the book are links to highly expensive pay by the hour labs that do not even include an answer key. These are used as examples, also. Another thing I dis liked was the last couple of chapters. They barley fit within the book's title.

started with this book on 2014 and here we are finished and amazed with the lifetime concepts gleaned from such thick reference, going through its tutorials enables you to witness the revolution of burp suite and how enriches your fundamental perspective on web application inner technology instead of HOW-TOs and kiddies recipes. JSON and XML are getting different through the years but principles never change

Useful for scoping, but omits finer details for obvious reasons. Almost all sections have examples that you will never see in the wild. Says, "Hack The Planet" on the back, so it's embarassing to carry around. Otherwise, a must-read more for web app developers than auditors, though.

850 pages of defined wisdom from authors of Burp Suite. From plain simple to nifty tricks, all here with option of paid training on their own platform. As an alternative OWASP's isos can be used for training. Very cool.
