WAF Bypass

Description

We successfuly bypassed your Web Application Firewall (WAF).

Remediation

Update your WAF configuration to prevent this bypass.

REST Specific

Asp.net

Ensure that your ASP.NET application has custom error pages configured to prevent detailed error information from being exposed. Implement request validation and encode output to prevent XSS attacks.

Ruby on rails

Use Rails built-in protection mechanisms such as strong parameters and CSRF protection. Regularly update Rails to the latest version to benefit from security patches.

Next.js

Apply rate limiting and implement proper input validation in your Next.js API routes. Keep dependencies up to date and use secure headers.

Laravel

Use Laravel's built-in security features like CSRF tokens, validation, and escaping output. Regularly update Laravel and its dependencies.

Express.js

Implement helmet for setting various HTTP headers and use express-rate-limit to help protect against brute-force attacks. Validate and sanitize user input.

Django

Use Django's built-in security features such as middleware for clickjacking protection, and ensure DEBUG is set to False in production.

Symfony

Leverage Symfony's security components like CSRF protection and use the latest stable version of Symfony for security fixes.

Spring boot

Secure Spring Boot applications by using Spring Security, enabling CSRF protection, and configuring method-level security.

Flask

Utilize Flask extensions like Flask-WTF for CSRF protection and Flask-Talisman for setting security headers. Always escape data before rendering it.

Nuxt

Ensure that Nuxt.js is configured to use HTTPS, set HTTP headers correctly, and validate and sanitize user inputs on both client and server sides.
