There’s a running quip we have on our valuation team about the Web Application Hackers Handbook. Whenever we see an innovative technology, or have to deal with a unique situation, we start doing exploration virtually only to find it was already mentioned in WAHH somewhere. We’ve all read this book numerous times too, it’s like Dafydd and Marcus snitch into our homes after dark and add content. Joking aside though, there is no other reference for web hacking as detailed or thorough as WAHH.

With WAHH the authors added a momentous amount content and go over existing chapters that were already deeply technical. The plus in WAHH2 is its linked labs. Dafydd and Marcus have been giving a live WAHH training for years and have now progressed the stellar CTF like trials to the cloud. When I say the labs are stellar, I mean it. The labs come just about straight from the class and start trifling and then get irrational. The injection labs were by far my favorite, covering 35-40 different injection types/alternates each between XSS/SQLi. The CTF in the class (which I’ll mention again is where the labs are based from) gets nonsensical just before the end. Even experienced web testers fall around questions 13-17. But I go off the point. WAHH2 is now the actual acquisition for any pen test/QA/Audit team. Its practice will outshine any other book on your shelf if you are doing applied testing.

Reading this book up to around page 500 made me gravely question how anyone could not like it. The amount of knowledge it gave me is totally amazing. I was in a hurry to finish it so I could come review it.
Then I finished it, and I agreed to some of the censures. It begins to feel like it’s restating itself after a while, and the product placement for Burp start to turn into a bit more frustrating.
Still, the rest of the book is packed full of great, thorough information. If you’re like me and had a simple understanding of how SQL injection worked, but sought to get a profounder look, this book is perfect. It’s hard for me to not love it when my main criticism is that it gives too much info. If you’re a novice or halfway to web application security and you’re marveling whether you should buy this, just do it. You won’t be thwarted. Highly Recommended.
