Does anyone have any best practice documentation on procedures to take once one of your web apps has been subject to either xss or sql injection? What actions do you take if you have an app that has been compromised etc? We are lucky to not have such a compromise but I want to look into best practice in case we are ever targetted?

Hi pma111,

>>  once one of your web apps has been subject to either xss or sql injection?

The first thing to do is pay a security firm to do an audit and subject your app(s) to penetration testing.  Better to know NOW where your weaknesses or holes are and take steps to fix them.

If you have an app that is compromised, pull it down right away.  Better 24 hours of frustration for users than months or years of dealing with the fallout of ignored security.
