So, we finally completed the Webgoat Vulnerable Components Vulnerability section. Next, we can mitigate these types of attacks by implementing automated alert and patching tools to ensure a secure software development lifecycle (SDLC) process and give our dev teams a snapshot of potential flaws. Along with that, we must keep a comprehensive inventory of all components used in the application to ensure only approved elements are in place. It also involves continuously reviewing and updating the list. On that note, i will take your leave and will meet you in next one with another Webgoat vulnerability writeup, till then “Keep Hacking”.
