Bug Bounty Bootcamp: The Guide to Finding and Reporting Web Vulnerabilities teaches you how to hack web applications. You will learn how to perform reconnaissance on a target, how to identify vulnerabilities, and how to exploit them. You’ll also learn how to navigate bug bounty programs set up by companies to reward security professionals for finding bugs in their web applications.
A comprehensive guide for any web application hacker, Bug Bounty Bootcamp is a detailed exploration of the many vulnerabilities present in modern websites and the hands-on techniques you can use to most successfully exploit them.
Bug bounty programs are company-sponsored programs that invite researchers to search for vulnerabilities on their applications and reward them for their findings. This book is designed to help beginners with little to no security experience learn web hacking, find bugs, and stay competitive in this booming and lucrative industry.
Bug Bounty Bootcamp prepares you for participation in bug bounty programs, which companies set up to reward hackers for finding and reporting vulnerabilities in their applications. The Bootcamp begins with guidance on writing high-quality bug reports and building lasting relationships with client organizations. You’ll then set up a hacking lab and dive into the mechanisms of common web vulnerabilities, like XSS and SQL injection, aided by thorough explanations of what causes them, how you can exploit them, where to find them, and how to bypass protections. You’ll also explore recon strategies for gathering intel on a target and automate recon with bash scripting. Finally, you’ll wade into advanced techniques, like hacking mobile apps, testing APIs, and reviewing source code for vulnerabilities.
You’ll start by learning how to choose a program, write quality bug reports, and maintain professional relationships in the industry. Then you’ll learn how to set up a web hacking lab and use a proxy to capture traffic. In Part 3 of the book, you’ll explore the mechanisms of common web vulnerabilities, like XSS, SQL injection, and template injection, and receive detailed advice on how to find them and bypass common protections. You’ll also learn how to chain multiple bugs to maximize the impact of your vulnerabilities.
Along the way, in Bug Bounty Bootcamp: The Guide to Finding and Reporting Web Vulnerabilities book you’ll learn how to:
- Identify and successfully exploit a wide array of common web vulnerabilities
- Set up a hacking environment, configure Burp Suite, and use its modules to intercept traffic and hunt for bugs
- Chain together multiple bugs for maximum impact and higher payouts
- Bypass protection mechanisms like input sanitization and blocklists to make your attacks succeed
- Automate tedious bug-hunting tasks with fuzzing and bash scripting
- Set up an Android app testing environment
Thousands of data breaches happen every year. By understanding vulnerabilities and how they happen, you can help prevent malicious attacks, protect apps and users, and make the internet a safer place. Happy bug hunting!
Finally, the book touches on advanced techniques rarely covered in introductory hacking books but that are crucial to understand to hack web applications. You’ll learn how to hack mobile apps, review an application’s source code for security issues, find vulnerabilities in APIs, and automate your hacking process. By the end of the Bug Bounty Bootcamp book, you’ll have learned the tools and techniques necessary to be a competent web hacker and find bugs on a bug bounty program.
