Brought to you by the Letter L and the Number 7


Since I strayed a bit on #11 out of 26 Short Stories, I figured that this entry would be mostly a link-fest – about Layer 7.  A picture is worth a thousand words don’t cha know.  SANS just released a report that says ‘60% of All Attacks hit Web Applications,’ and other research indicates that 70% of all attacks target Layer 7. Today, I thought I would just share a list of common Layer 7 attacks to show the many ways applications can be breached.  List courtesy of Vikram Phatak.
