Web Applications





Web applications are systems that run in browsers that perform functions normally associated with other client-based programs. One of the most commonly used web applications is email; instead of downloading individual emails to a local machine, the data is shown through a website. Other examples of web applications are collaborative systems like a wiki or an online game.

I am using IIS 7 for this and I have the certificate properly installed and the bindings set up in IIS.

I can access https://mysite.com/Services/SampleInventoryService.svc in a browser but when I try calling the service to get some data I get  a 404 not found error. This does work fine using HTTP.

Is this an issue with the service model portion of my web config?

Can someone please let me know what needs to be changed?

        <binding name="basicHttpBindingConfig">
          <security mode="None">
            <transport clientCredentialType="None" proxyCredentialType="None" />
        <binding name="InventoryServiceBinding" />
      <service name="SampleInventoryService">
        <endpoint address="https://mysite.com/Services/SampleInventoryService.svc" binding="basicHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="basicHttpBindingConfig" contract="PromoStandards.InventoryService.Contract.v1.InventoryService" />
       <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
          <!-- To avoid disclosing metadata information, set the value below to false and remove the metadata endpoint above before deployment -->

One of the people assisting me with the marketing of a time tracking tool on my website came across this advertisement for another website https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E48dtx8i_s.

He swears this is computer generated but does not know which product would have generated it.

It would be good to find a tool that could give me the same computer generated voice with the level of quality found in that video.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.
What exactly is the difference between a Web Framework, Web Server vs Javascript Frameworks?
Is there a way to use AngularJS with Bootstrap 4? I would like to use AngularJS' cards and colors in Bootstrap 4. I don't know if this is possible since I'm not really looking into building an apps.

Maybe I'm quibbling here...

looking for solutions how to create interactive surveys whereby at the end of it, some customized reports would shown instantly to the user online. e.g of this is this link https://www.nab.com.au/personal/investments-super/financial-advice/financial-health-check

My document suite for a web app contains a HELPFUL HINTS doc, which provides general info about the application.

I need to list certain system requirements/restrictions. Right now, I have only one (min. browser width), but this list could grow over time.

What's the best title for this section?
System Requirements (As I said in the title.)
Limitations (Meh.)


PS-Hope I'm not overthinking here...I think part of my brain's still on the holiday weekend. :)
What are the main security consideration and risks associated with accessing a web application through a mobile phone? Are there any specific to using a mobile phone rather than a PC/Laptop?

We have an application that is web based, an update to this has added the functionality to access this through a mobile.  I was fairly happy as normally the application would be accessed from PCs/Laptops attached to our network.  However the thought of access through a mobile phone that could be lost or accessed if there is no PIN makes me a bit nervous to how insecure we may now be making the application.

Are there any specific controls I should be checking are in place with regards to mobile access?

Just saw an article on Winn-Dixie losing court battle dealing with their website and lack of being fully accessible to the disabled. Conclusion to the case was websites will need to conform to WCAG 2.0 standards. Our company operates 3 websites, all on the Shopify platform. I have been given the task to find out if we are compliant.  I downloaded the NVDA screen reader and all three sites were compatible with that, as well as a Mac screen reader. My question...anyone dealing with this and what tips or advice can you supply to assist in the matter ?  Is there an official "checklist" ?  Thanks in advance, I am sure we will be hearing more about requirements and potential lawsuits soon enough.
I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?
I have 2 servers (Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2008) being scanned by Qualys that have surfaced this finding:

HTTP Security Header Not Detected HTTP Security Header Not Detected port 80/tcp

This QID reports the absence of the following HTTP headers:
X-Frame-Options: This HTTP response header improves the protection of web applications against clickjacking attacks. Clickjacking, also known as
a "UI redress attack", allows an attacker to use multiple transparent or opaque layers to trick a targeted user into clicking on a button or link on
another page when they were intending to click on the the top level page.
X-XSS-Protection: This HTTP header enables the browser built-in Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) filter to prevent cross-site scripting attacks. X-XSSProtection:
0; disables this functionality.
X-Content-Type-Options: This HTTP header prevents attacks based on MIME-type mismatch. The only possible value is nosniff. If your server
returns X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff in the response, the browser will refuse to load the styles and scripts in case they have an incorrect MIMEtype.
QID Detection Logic:
This unauthenticated QID looks for the presence of valid X-Frame-Options, X-XSS-Protection HTTP and X-Content-Type-Options headers in a
HTTP request.
Depending on the vulnerability being exploited, an unauthenticated remote attacker could conduct cross-site scripting, clickjacking or MIME-type
sniffing attacks.
Hello Experts,

Somehow on some of our websites, the redirect to 443 was shut down.

How would you go about finding the missing redirects?

This is on Windows IIS.

The only thing I can think of is running scans on 80 and 443 and compare the two, but I don't think that will address the missing redirect. We do not have a Web Application Firewall to determine this.

Would the firewall reporting tools work? What the SIEM?

Thank you, your recommendations are appreciated.


In  a web application, we have a horizontal area of the screen displaying various metrics. e.g. (scrubbed)

Temperature     Humidity     Wind Direction  Wind Speed  Barometer
        74                    53%                 SW                         10 MPH        29.86

It's not a toolbar or ribbon b/c it's display-only. Accordingly, is there a more concise name than "screen area"?  I suppose I could say "section", but I'm not thrilled with that word. :)

WordPress Tutorial 1: Installation & Setup
WordPress Tutorial 1: Installation & Setup

WordPress is a very popular option for running your web site and can be used to get your content online quickly for the world to see. This guide will walk you through installing the WordPress server software and the initial setup process.

As this is a proprietary app developed some time ago, it does not come with
an audit logging & it became an audit finding.

I'm proposing a 'video-recording' of users session to be implemented as
compensating controls.

Anyone can suggest any tool to do such video recording such that when
the thick client is executed, it will start video capturing the screen &
upon exiting the app, the recording stops & gets saved.

2 tools below was found while browsing the Net but our applications
developer retorted they're not the right products:

Apps guy: VSTS below seems to be only applicable to web applications? True or False?

Apps guy: JMeter works by pushing thick client traffic through JMeter proxy which detect traffic
and record it into JMeter HTTP Requests & this JMeter proxy is located out there in the Internet
& using this solution means pushing sensitive data out there into Internet.   True or false?

I'm documenting a time field that displays (e.g) 10;42:38.496
where .496 is 496 thousandths of a second.

So, if I say
HH:MM:SS.xxx, which are the letters to use for xxx?


What is the proper terminology for a horizontal area at the top of a screen that contains not only menu choices, but also other options (e.g. change password, configure screen layout, etc.) I can't truly call it a menu, so what works? Panel? Bar? Something else?

Unfortunately, I cannot provide a screenshot b/c the software's proprietary.

Today’s developers are the architects of the digital age, the ones turning code into websites and mobile apps that will define the next generation of technology innovation.
I have a customer who wants to add a live chat feature to their web site (I think mostly for people who are having technical issues, or questions about enrolling in their courses, etc.)  Compatibility with various browsers would be a plus too.

Anyone have particular chat software/function that they recommend?

can we print crystal report automatically without clicking CTRL+P from client printer?
