Website security is a major problem today and should be a priority in any organization or a webmaster, Now a days Hackers are concentrating alot of their efforts to find holes in a web application, If you are a website owner and having a High Page rank and High Traffic then there is a chance that you might be a victim of these Hackers.
Few years back their existed no proper tools search for vulnerability, but now a days there are tons of tools available through which even a newbie can find a vulnerable site and start Hacking
