Form Validation test – Microsoft website hacked

Do you validate form data? What can happen if you don’t?

Microsoft today is the subject of our first security test related to forms and data validation.

I wanted to play around to test this server edition, so using my Virtual lab I decided to test Microsoft Server 2016 essentials and download it from the Microsoft  Evaluation centre.

Hacking Microsoft Website –  the video 

The Microsoft website today is a good example of what happens when you don’t validate well your form data.

Leave the required fields vulnerable to browsers attacks is a bad idea unless you don’t care.

When I started coding I realised how easy could be with some knowledge hack a website.

If the registration form to download a product from the website can be hacked from any browser without actually filling any form …what else can be attacked?
