The evolution of the Internet and web technologies, combined with rapidly increasing Internet connectivity, has led to the emergence of a new business landscape. Web applications are an integral component of online businesses. Everyone connected via the Internet is using various web applications for different purposes, including online shopping, email, chats, and social networking.

Web applications are becoming increasingly vulnerable to more sophisticated threats and attack vectors. Attackers attempt various application-level attacks to compromise the security of web applications to commit fraud or steal sensitive information. Pen testers and attackers use the web application hacking methodology to gain knowledge of a particular web application to compromise it successfully. This methodology allows them to plan each step to increase their chances of successfully hacking the application. Under this methodology, they do the following to collect detailed information about various resources needed to run or access the web application:
