San Francisco is an uproar over electric scooters. Thanks to startups like Bird, LimeBike and Spin, the motorized two-wheelers invaded San Francisco’s streets, seemingly overnight, and quickly became the Tech Bus issue of 2018. While commuters and tourists enjoy the environmentally friendly transport, residents bemoan broken toes, near-miss collisions and abandoned scooters littering the sidewalk. Meantime, the city legislators are struggling to know how to deal with the new and high-profile roll-out, which apparently has no formal permits.
To say traffic patterns are “unpredictable” for a lottery company would be an understatement. The larger the jackpot, the larger the spike in traffic. That’s why Swisslos, the Swiss lottery company, decided they couldn’t leave their application infrastructure to chance.
We all can agree that cyber attacks are on rise. Be it Yahoo's data leak in 2013 where 1 billion user accounts were compromised or the more recent Equifax data leak which affected its 143 million customers, these events show the increased risk each web application is facing. Web applications are the bones and flesh of today’s businesses, and are often soft targets for damaging attacks.

Web application security is paramount for businesses that provide services using sensitive data. To understand the problem in more detail, we should examine what occurred in the case of Equifax—the attack is mind boggling in its scale and damage.
