What is Website Penetration Testing? Penetration Testing, often called “pen testing” is the practice of attacking your own systems in the same way a hacker would to identify security holes. This type of testing is carried out to identify hardware and software flaws with the aim of stopping future potential hackers.
What type of common threats can penetration testing pick up?
A database that allows connections to itself without authorisation.
Fooling the system into thinking you are a registered user.
