Gillis Jones works for WhiteHat Security, where his job rests within the TRC (Threat Research Center). It’s here that he performs hands-on site assessments, which involve manually confirming all the issues reported by an automatic scan of a particular Website or application. His job includes checking the application’s POST and GET requests for reflection of any inputs. He also checks for Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), which includes stored, reflected, and DOM XSS vulnerabilities. His aim is to build a mental map of a Website and its applications, so he knows “where to hit, where important functionality is, stuff like that.” Information leakage, XSS and SQLi are also common problems."
