Testing for Security in the Age of Ajax Programming

September 27th, 2006
Comments Off on Testing for Security in the Age of Ajax Programming

He will mouse over every country on the map and check that the results match. He might even set up an automated test script that will mouse over every single pixel on the screen, and he will check to see if there are any errors in the Ajax programming or underlying page code. But, even this extreme level of thoroughness won’t be enough to find the SQL injection vulnerability. By using a web browser (or automated script recorded from a web browser) as his test tool, the tester has limited his potential requests to only those which the browser can send, and the browser is itself limited by the source code of the web page. In the example above, the browser would be limited to sending only valid country parameters to the GetProducts method, since only valid countries are present in the page code. In other words, no matter where the user (or QA engineer) navigates with the mouse, the only parameters that would be sent are “GBR”, “FRA”, “USA”, etc. Using only these valid, well-formed parameters will never reveal the SQL injection vulnerability. To do that, the QA team needs to expand their arsenal of test tools beyond browsers alone.
