Web Application Password is Sent Over Unsecured HTTP Traffic

Netsparker detected that password data is being transmitted over HTTP.

Impact

If an attacker can intercept network traffic, he/she can steal users' credentials.

Actions to Take

  1. See the remedy for solution.
  2. Move all of your critical forms and pages to HTTPS and do not serve them over HTTP.

Remedy

All sensitive data should be transferred over HTTPS rather than HTTP. Forms should be served over HTTPS. All aspects of the application that accept user input, starting from the login process, should only be served over HTTPS.
