N-Stalker added support for the new OWASP Top 10 2021

By N-Stalker Team on September 16, 2021

OWASP, or the Open Web Application Security Project, is a nonprofit organization focused on software security. Their projects include a number of open-source software development programs and toolkits, local chapters and conferences, among other things. One of their projects is the maintenance of the OWASP Top 10, a list of the top 10 security risks faced by web applications.

What’s changed in the Top 10 for 2021

There are three new categories, four categories with naming and scoping changes, and some consolidation in the Top 10 for 2021. We’ve changed names when necessary to focus on the root cause over the symptom.


The complete list of Top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities in 2021 are:
  • Broken Access Control.
  • Cryptographic Failures.
  • Injection.
  • Insecure Design.
  • Security Misconfiguration.
  • Vulnerable and Outdated Components.
  • Identification and Authentication Failures.
  • Software and Data Integrity Failures.
  • Security Logging and Monitoring Failures
  • Server-side Request Forgery

Both Free and Commercial Editions of N-Stalker will be automatically updated to support the latest version of OWASP Top 10 2021.
