Hi Cybrarians,

I was recently taking Cybrary’s Web Application Penetration Testing Course, and since then, I’ve gained a little knowledge of web applications. Therefore, I started Googling it and I found some cool resources or sites and I would like to share them with you.

The first site I found is known as Hacksplaining. You can also check out their youtube channel.

So basically, it is a site which can help u in learning some of the basics of the most common and dangerous web vulnerabilities and their countermeasures like SQL injection, XSS, clickjacking, CRSF, etc., with a short hands-on experience and quiz.  You can take a look at its features here: and view their exercises here:

It is free, you just need to signup with your email or any social account. Currently, it has 20 different exercises. For more information watch this video:

The second site I want to tell you about is Many of you may be familiar with it, but for those who do not know what it is, here is a brief intro: is a sandbox hacking website that teaches penetration testing for all sorts of technologies today. They provide different levels of hacking challenges to educate people on real ways that criminals are taking advantage of people on the Internet. The basic web challenges are the perfect place to start learning about common mistakes that people make online.

It is also free and will take you from beginner to expert level. It also has forensic challenges. If you are new to this site and having trouble with basic challenges, take a look at this article and it will help guide you through some of the basics.

For all of you who are new to web app pentesting and are searching for a set of good articles on it, take a look here. This is just one source, but it will definately help until you do some more digging and find others you might like.
