than three paragraphs, and have at least one response to another
student of at least one paragraph: Review the attacks listed on the OWASP website, located at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:Attack.
Focus on selecting three attacks that you believe to be the greatest
security threat, rank what you believe to be the top three greatest
security threats (e.g., cookie/session poisoning, platform exploits,
etc.), and provide a rationale for your rankings. Explain the key
inherent dangers of the chosen threats, and indicate the key reasons why
you believe such threats pose more of a risk than other current ones in
existence. Justify your answer. Review the attacks listed on the OWASP website, located at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:Attack.
Focus on selecting three attacks that you believe to be the greatest
security threat, rank what you believe to be the top three greatest
security threats (e.g., cookie/session poisoning, platform exploits,
etc.), discuss the appropriate countermeasures that security personnel
could utilize in order to minimize the damage of such threats. Determine
whether or not the countermeasures that you have ranked are reactive or
proactive in nature, and suggest the primary ways in which each
countermeasure could assist in preventing further damage from the
threats in question. Explain whether or not honeypots would assist in
protecting and evaluating the three threats selected. Provide a
rationale for your response.
