It is increasingly harder to anticipate attacks and malicious activity. In a Verisign survey of IT decision makers 63% had experienced some form of attack in the past year, 67% said any downtime affected their customers, and 51% reported lost revenue from the downtime. The survey shows, from IT security perspective, the importance of keeping systems updated and monitored at all times. One-way to mitigate these forms of attacks are to use some form of stateful inspection firewalls. One such product that uses stateful inspection by default on all application traffic is Sophos that is an appliance or Virtual Machine. In this paper, we will discuss three common Web application vulnerabilities and attacks with recommendations on how to mitigate.
