Several reasons: reduce testing time automation clear methodology consistency of testing and results repeatability of testing Tools are never needed to break something. But you are providing a testing service, and in order to provide value to your clients, you do well to act more like a QA tester instead of a smart person who can break things. No one cares ...

There’s an old joke variant that runs something like this: A major newspaper had a sudden problem with their normally reliable high speed printer. When they couldn’t quickly fix it, someone said that “Charlie” was the master of that particular printer. “Well where’s Charlie?” “He retired last week.” “Bring him in under special contract!” Charlie came ...

Is it possible to exploit this code? Yes. How can an attacker exploit this? Path Traversal Vulnerabilities allow an attacker to choose a file that is not intended by the developer. For example, your program has the path "C:\\Users\\kutrivedi\\Desktop\\Ref\\" + input + ".txt" hardcoded. If I entered foo as input, then the resulting file would be C:\\...

Among other things, Burp allows you to get a good look of the layout of a web app through spidering- exposing source code and dependencies, directory layout, even API methods that are being called, etc. Much of this can be done simply with the browser dev tools, though trying to manage this within a browser's dev tools would likely prove to be insane. ...

In much more complex cases I personally like to collect all experimental results (like you did) which I found through manual testing, sit down and try to implement such filtering locally and try to bypass it with different browsers and browser versions. Additionally you need to know in which programming language was written this web application - it might be ...

Owasp dependency check is one of the ways to go. It downloads all the latest vulnerability listings for the dependencies and than checks your app dependencies against them.

If the port is connected to the network switch, and the network serves up DCHP, then the laptop will get an IP address and gateway, and will likely be able to gain access to the network. NMap could then be used to map out the network. To help protect against this, the customer can either move to static IPs, use MAC address filtering, and/or find a firewall ...

Active directory penetration testing is an entire field of study with many attack vectors. BloodHound by SpecterOps looks for common active directory misconfigurations such as stale objects, incorrect ACL/DACL assignments, delegation issues, problems relating to trusts between AD forests and many more. However, if stealth is a concern, BloodHound is quite ...

SOAPUI is a good tool to execute a DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing). Another good open source tool is OWASP ZAP. There are also a bunch of commercial ones. It's not the tool you are testing with, but the web attack payloads it runs against your application. If two of the tools have the same web attack payloads, there is no need to use another ...

Team_id is not a sensitive token in slack, nor can it be used in a Proof-of-Concept. The team_id variable is just used to indicate the ID of the team's slack channel in a programmatic way. If you're looking for bugs in slack, imo I think their websockets implementation may be worth a look if you're looking for potential targets.
