Japanese Dictionary

Topic: Web Technologies, Date: 21/05/2015


The Japanese dictionary was created so that I could track what words I had currently learnt when I was studying Japanese. It also turned out to be a great opportunity to make a website which had a database. This would mean that I could create a database system and try to make it as secure as I could by stopping attacks that I learnt from a Cybercrime module and various Cyber-Security forums.

When the site was finally complete I asked some friends to pen-test it in order to make sure that any dangerous bugs could be fixed. Eventually they found ways to add to the dictionary by posting data through a cookie. This was quickly fixed and no bugs have been found since.
