OWASP Top 10 Report

by Cody Dumont
June 19, 2014

Web application security is a key concern for any organization. The software security community created the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) to help educate developers and security professionals. This report provides Tenable.sc users the ability to monitor web applications by identifying the top 10 most critical vulnerabilities as described in OWASP's Top 10 awareness document.

The OWASP Top 10 outlines several different aspects of web based security, from Cross-Site scripting attacks, Security Misconfigurations, and Sensitive data exposure. The Top 10’s focus is to reduce risk across the most vulnerable aspects of conducting business across the internet. Following these guidelines empowers organizations to reduce risk to organizational and customer data theft.

Administrators need to ensure that their organization isn’t vulnerable to any of the attacks that relate to the 10 different focuses of the Top 10. In addition, the compliance related focuses, like the known vulnerable components and insufficient logging, are important for eliminating gaps in an organization’s security that aren’t directly tied to exploitable attacks.

This report covers all aspects of the OWASP Top 10, and gives administrators the tools and information needed to aid their efforts. The chapters related to exploitable vulnerabilities gives organizations a roadmap for reducing attack risk. The compliance and logging chapters will also guide organizations on the steps that they need to take to mitigate business risk through strong security practice.

The report is available in the SecurityCenter Feed, a comprehensive collection of dashboards, reports, assurance report cards and assets. The report can be easily located in the SecurityCenter Feed under the category Security Industry Trends. The report requirements are:

      • Tenable.sc 5.2.0

      • Nessus 8.4.0

      • LCE 6.0.0

      • NNM 5.9.0

Tenable.sc CV provides continuous network monitoring, vulnerability identification, risk reduction, and compliance monitoring. Nessus is continuously updated with information about advanced threats and zero-day vulnerabilities, and new types of regulatory compliance configuration audits. By integrating with Nessus, Tenable.sc CV provides the most comprehensive view of network security data.


Executive Summary - This chapter is comprised of seven components, starting with two 90-day trend graphs, depicting critical and high severity vulnerabilities discovered over the past six months. There are two indicator components that monitor web server, SQL Server, and IDS logs for web application events. The third indicator component provides a view into several web application security issues starting with injection vulnerabilities and ending with cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. There is a table with all informational vulnerabilities related to web application security. The final component is a detailed matrix showing vulnerabilities mapped to the ten most critical web application security risks identified in OWASP's Top Ten document. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Top_Ten_Project

OWASP Top 10 Security Flaws Details - This chapter covers in detail the 10 most common security flaws identified in the OWASP Top 10. The chapter is broken down into a section for each security flaw, and contains a pie chart and vulnerability summary table.
