Security misconfigurations are very common security risks, not just in web applications but also in APIs. They have been consistently part of the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Vulnerabilities. They were part of the original OWASP Top 10 API Security Risks published in 2019 and have now made it to the updated 2023 list. Security misconfiguration maintains its 7th rank in OWASP Top 10 API 2023RC owing to its widespread prevalence, easy exploitability, and easy detectability.

We witness a sharp surge in website security risks, as highlighted in the latest State of Application Security Report for Q1 2023. AppTrana WAAP blocked 1 billion attacks across 1400+ websites under its protection. Every website is at risk, regardless of whether it is a simple blog, a portfolio showcase, a small cupcake business, or a dynamic e-commerce platform. Why would someone hack my website? How do hackers check if my website is hackable? How do websites get hacked?

APIs are great for accessing specific functions and features, but what happens when they allow unauthorized access? Imagine a social media platform where users can share posts. To enable users to access posts, the platform provides an API that allows GET requests to retrieve posts by specifying the user ID and post ID. GET/api/v2.1/user/1438/posts?id=40. The API will return the 40th post for user id 1438. As these are public forums, any user can submit GET requests to access posts.

Most SaaS engineering teams use the CI/CD pipeline for software development. Since a CI/CD approach enables faster, more collaborative, and more efficient development processes, leading to higher-quality software. No wonder that this is popular. More frequent release cycles mean more opportunities for vulnerabilities to creep into the code. While DevOps teams are central to running a CI/CD pipeline, since application security is gaining importance, more engineering teams are adding DevSecOps teams.

WAF ( Web Application Firewall) is the first line of defense between the app and the internet traffic. It monitors and filters internet traffic to stop bad traffic and malicious requests. The WAF is a crucial security solution that ensures the availability and integrity of web services. It functions as a reverse proxy by serving as an intermediary that safeguards the web app server against malicious clients.

Excessive data exposure occurs when APIs reveal more fields, data, and information than the client requires through the API response. Excessive data exposure flaws expose all object properties to API calls rather than what the user needs to act on without considering the object’s sensitivity level. This vulnerability exposes you to data leaks, man-in-the-middle attacks, and other cyber threats. That is why excessive data exposure in APIs is listed as #3 in the OWASP API Security Top 10 2019.

As APIs continue to increase across industries, so too do the threats to their security. The OWASP API Top 10 list is an essential resource for businesses looking to secure their application programming interfaces. OWASP is best known for releasing the top 10 security risks and vulnerability lists for web apps, mobile apps, APIs, and so on, which are revised every four years to reflect the latest threats and risks affecting organizations globally.
