Or learn some cool things about security
Or maybe both ?

    Start security, and gradually shift to a 50/50 deal

    @R1100 too soon ? ;p Oh I forgot Capital One in the list.

    But to be fair, I had a similar bug once.

    Just AFTER we deployed Application Insights : One week later I saw that user passwords were logged in logs in plain text. As App Insights record the body of all POST requests, password was there :)

    To solve it, I excluded "bodY' recording from login attempts. But for a week, we had some of users passwords in plain text.

    @NoToJavaScript well the attacker can still get the user passwords within the network

    @R1100 It’s SSL (Like any website). So yeah, attacker can do the same as any other website
    Application insight could log passwords in text because it’s running after SSL layer.

    But still evil twin and mitm works .
    Or maybe hacking the routers and redirecting the traffic.

    @R1100 Ofcause it works !
    I can’t believe how 75% of websites don’t implement basic things.
    We are in 2019 and I can guaranty you, I can find a web site with open SQL Injections in like 10 minutes.
    Couple of years ago I even made a scrip which was googling for “admin.asp” and then just tests forms for injections. Out of 10000 sites, 1500 were susceptible. And in this 1500, there were 1 credit card processor.

    @R1100 It's so fun to do.

    I went to implement a full DB dump, if injection were possible ;p

    Now I need to find this code.

    @NoToJavaScript can you bypass the Captcha? (Python machine learning and such)

    @R1100 No, my script was specifically targeting VERY old website (admin.asp, not aspx). There are still plenty lol ! These sites don’t even know what “captcha” is.
