This paper focuses on hacking techniques of web applications and how the implementation of security through programming can keep intruders from wreaking havoc on your system. The paper will define a web application and discuss the architecture of the web application, as it will explain the multiple tier theory. The paper will discuss security in web applications and will look at basic rules in information security planning. The paper will look at seven steps in web application hacking and the top ten vulnerabilities that criminals can exploit in order to gain access and take control of a computer system. It is hoped that security professionals will take a close look at this seriously dangerous security risk in order to help close the security holes that could and do exist in web applications.
