Course Description

Common attack vectors such as cross-site scripting are becoming more difficult to exploit due to the implementation of defenses. In this course, you'll examine how to evade input filters to gain XSS execution. Next, you'll explore web shells, including how they can be deployed, defenses, and evasions. Many of today's web applications utilize an Application Programming Interface to facilitate interaction between clients and services. To wrap up this course, you'll learn about attributes of APIs, how they compare with webhooks, and common vulnerabilities and security countermeasures associated with both APIs and webhooks. This course is one in a series that helps to prepare you for the Certified Ethical Hacker v11 (312-50) exam.
