Web-based services are common targets for hackers, and the need for ensuring their security keeps on rising. Attackers often take advantage of the vulnerabilities of different web applications using several mechanisms and thus steal and manipulate valuable information. Therefore, the attack vectors are also increasing since there is a wide variety of internet users. Exploitations caused by different types of cyberattacks results in data loss, identity theft, financial loss, and various other adversaries on both humans and infrastructure. Therefore, investigating various attack vectors and countermeasures can facilitate and encourage future research and create awareness among web application users and developers.
