This lab involves exploiting the vulnerable web application called the “Juice Shop”. The first goal is to perform a SQL Injection attack and gain access to the “admin” account of the web application. Having gained access to the “admin,” the final goal involves performing a DOM-based XSS attack that results in an alert message being displayed within the browser. These web application attacks are commonly used by hackers to breach websites and have therefore earned a spot on the OWASP Top 10.
