On a report titled “Surge on Web defacement and web application related vulnerabilities targeting Bangladesh” BGD e-GOV CIRT said, web defacement attacks and the exploitation of web application vulnerabilities are a growing trend in Bangladesh.

These weaknesses can be used for phishing attacks, spreading malware, and creating backdoors for continuous access, further endangering the security of the affected websites. Websites and applications use environment or configuration files to manage content and specify data locations. Alterations to these files can indicate a security breach or defacement attack. 73% of all identified web vulnerabilities are found in websites and IoT devices accessed through basic HTTP authentication.
