My daughter is participating in a Cyber Security Competition and one of the challenges is about the OWASP reference codes for the top 10 vulnerabilities found in Websites in 2017. The challenge is pasted below:
White-hat researchers use the resources of OWASP to learn about security vulnerabilities in websites. OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) is an open community dedicated to enabling organizations to develop, purchase, and maintain applications that can be trusted. Anyone can read the information on the OWASP websites to improve their understanding of Cyber Security, particularly how it affects websites.
Your challenge is to find Top 10 vulnerabilities found in websites, according to OWASP, in the year 2017. Once you find that list, drill down further and find the reference codes for the following three vulnerabilities:
Sensitive Data Exposure
Each reference code will be in the format , for example ‘X71’ or ‘T5’ would be valid codes.
Concatenate your answers together in the order above, for example ‘X71T5C8’ might be your answer.
We could find no mention of said reference codes after searching online - any ideas on what these codes are?
Thanks very much, in advance!
