Insufficient Data Validation

When a user makes a request to a web application from the web client, the HTTP headers and parameters are read in and used by the web application on the server to perform the requested functions; then the response is sent back to the client. If these headers and parameters are not validated to ensure that they are exactly what the web application is expecting, then a number of critical vulnerabilities may arise such as SQL injection, XML injection, cross-site scripting, and HTTP response splitting. These may allow attackers to compromise databases and applications, hijack sessions, and steal authentication credentials.
