Summary

Burp Suite is an integrated platform/graphical tool for performing security testing of web applications. Burp suite is a java application that can be used to secure or crack web applications. The suite consists of different tools, like a proxy server, a web spider an intruder and a so-called repeater, with which requests can be automated. You can use Burp's automated and manual tools to obtain detailed information about your target applications.
Damn Vulnerable Web App (DVWA) is a PHP/MySQL web application that is damn vulnerable. Its main goals are to be an aid for security professionals to test their skills and tools in a legal environment, help web developers better understand the processes of securing web applications and aid teachers/students to teach/learn web application security in a class room environment.
In this report I am using a combination of Burp tools to detect and exploit vulnerabilities in Damn Vulnerable Web App (DVWA) with low security. By default, Burp Scanner scans all requests and responses that pass through the proxy. Burp lists any issues that it identifies under Issue activity on the Dashboard. You can also use Burp Scanner to actively audit for vulnerabilities. Scanner sends additional requests and analyzes the application's traffic and behavior to identify issues.
Various examples are outlined in this report for different types of vulnerabilities such as: SQL injection, Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Cross-site scripting, File upload, Local and Remote File Inclusion. I tested various types of penetration testing tools in order to exploit different types of vulnerabilities. The report consists from the following parts:
1. Installing and Configuring BurpSuite
2. BurpSuite Intruder.
3. Installing XMAPP and DVWA App in Windows System.
4. Installing PHP, MySQL, Apache2, Python and DVWA App in Kali Linux.
5. Scanning Kali-Linux and Windows Using .
6. Understanding Netcat, Reverse Shells and Bind Shells.
7. Adding Burps Certificate to Browser.
8. Setting up Target Scope in BurpSuite.
9. Scanning Using BurpSuite.
10. Scan results for SQL Injection Vulnerability with BurpSuite and Using SQLMAP to Exploit the SQL injection.
11. Scan Results for Operating System Command Injection Vulnerability with BurpSuite and Using Commix to Exploit the OS Command Injection.
12. Scan Results for Cross Side Scripting (XSS) Vulnerability with BurpSuite, Using Xserve to exploit XSS Injection and Stealing Web Login Session Cookies through the XSS Injection.
13. Exploiting File Upload Vulnerability.
14: Exploiting Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) Vulnerability.
15. Exploiting File Inclusion Vulnerability.
16. References.

    First published in 2012, Borders: A Very Short Introduction began with the premise that "we live in a very bordered world." The intervening decade has witnessed a flurry of events and developments that continue to highlight the centrality of borders in contemporary domestic and international affairs, as well as the interstices between the two, including sudden surges in migrant and refugees flows; renewed emphasis on traditional border security and wall construction; growing tensions concerning maritime sovereignty; rapid advances in cybersecurity, surveillance, and biometrics; expanded detention and deportation infrastructures; proliferation of transborder organizations; revived populist and nationalist sentiments; and protectionist and integrationist trade practices, to name some prominent examples from recent headlines.This revised edition accounts for recent developments including Brexit, the 2015 migration crisis across Europe, efforts to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico, growing isolationist and nativist sentiments, demands for indigenous homelands, transnational protest movements, Russian cross-border incursions, and insurgencies and rebellions across much of North Africa and Southwest Asia.

    The physicist and author of This Changes Everything presents an engaging inquiry into the origins of the universe and the beginning of time.   In Time One, Colin Gillespie takes on the greatest scientific mystery of all time with the aid of a fictional detective. Approaching forty-seven classic philosophical problems as clues to the question of how the universe began, Gillespie connects the dots across centuries of philosophy, literature and religion—and leads readers to asingle, elegant solution.   Using the devices of storytelling to help readers understand the serious science being discussed—such as the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory—Gillespie reveals the very instant time begins and explains exactly how the universe is constructed. Time One tackles the most important issues in physics and cosmology and its answers are both fascinating and strikingly simple.

    A veteran physician shares his opinion on the state of health care in America and what needs to be done to change it. In an age where uncertainty rules the day, Dr. Rob Tenery explains how health care has evolved into a $2.6 trillion enterprise. He does this with carefully researched histories and a series of challenging and thought-provoking commentaries on the most important issues of the day. Dr. Tenery’s book focuses on a time when doctors and patients worked together to determine the best course of treatment—solutions now being ceded to large corporations and the federal government. He relates, as only a physician can, the challenges, fulfillment, and ethical dilemmas of caring for patients and making the best decisions for their health and well-being. Whether contemplating what doctors can do when nothing can be done, or thinking about the state of the medical profession, his insights are based on real-life experiences with his patients and colleagues. Dr. Tenery brings a perspective and a set of values gained from his father and grandfather, who, together with the author, represent over a century of caring for patients. This book gives you the opportunity to step into the shoes of a dedicated third-generation physician and to see the changing nature of health and medical care through his eyes. This physician of over thirty-seven years is sharing his collected writing for a better understanding of why medicine is a profession and not just another business.

    A cultural philosopher and an astrophysicist attempt to decipher how we fit into the universe, and the impact our placement has on us. After a four-century rupture between science and the questions of value and meaning, this groundbreaking book presents an explosive and potentially life-altering idea: if the world could agree on a shared creation story based on modern cosmology and biology—a story that has just become available—it would redefine our relationship with Planet Earth and benefit all of humanity, now and into the distant future.Written in eloquent, accessible prose and illustrated in magnificent color throughout, including images from innovative simulations of the evolving universe, this book brings the new scientific picture of the universe to life. It interprets what our human place in the cosmos may mean for us and our descendants. It offers unique insights into the potential use of this newfound knowledge to find solutions to seemingly intractable global problems such as climate change and unsustainable growth. And it explains why we need to “think cosmically, act globally” if we're going to have a long-term, prosperous future on Earth.“Should be read by anyone, not just scientists, who worry about the human condition.”—Deepak Chopra, The Huffington Post“A prophetic book. Its message ranks right up there with those of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Joel. Like the prophets, it is at times poetic, demanding, grounded, soaring, empowering, and always awe-inspiring.”—Matthew Fox, Tikkun“The ideas and images are fascinating and certainly contribute to a sense of the profound stakes involved in what we’re doing to the planet and ourselves.”—William Kowinski, North Coast Journal
