TWEET OF THE DAY

  • Great advice from @fransrosen on how to write a report title today: the title should answer the "WHAT", "WHERE", "WHY", and "HOW". Example: instead of "XSS", use "Reflected XSS on http://site.com/page  due to unsanitized fragment redirect using javascript protocol" instead. - @jobertabma

These components were not populated with data; no data from the financial institution was ever present in the test environment at any time, although the filename contained the name of the financial institution.
