Protect your application against XXE

You don’t have to be a security expert to protect your applications against XXE attacks. 
Detect XML external entities and thousands of other vulnerabilities in a few easy clicks.

What is an XXE vulnerability?

XML external entity injection, also known as XXE attacks, is one of the most common security vulnerabilities in web applications, APIs, and microservices.

It allows hackers to interfere with an application’s processing of XML data. Although the XXE is not as popular as XSS attacks or SQL Injection it is one of the OWASP Top 10 security risks.

What are the risks XXE represents?

By performing an XXE Injection, attackers can view files on the application server file system, or interact with any backend external systems that the application itself can access.

In some cases, hackers can even cause Denial of Service (DoS) and elevate an XXE attack to compromise the underlying server or other backend infrastructure, by leveraging the XXE vulnerability to perform server-side request forgery (SSRF) attack.
