Surge on Web Defacement and Web Application Related Vulnerabilities Targeting Bangladesh

Web defacement attacks and the exploitation of web application vulnerabilities are growing concerns in Bangladesh. These attacks, similar to virtual vandalism, involve hackers altering website appearances or content, often to embarrass site owners or promote personal agendas. Hackers also inject harmful code into websites, risking the security of visitor data. The exploitation of these vulnerabilities often leads to data breaches through exfiltration, dumping of personally identifiable information (PII), and other sensitive data. Additionally, these vulnerabilities can be leveraged for phishing attacks, malware distribution, and creating backdoors for persistent access, further compromising the integrity and security of the affected website.
