[OWASP-TESTING] pentest cheat sheet

Hi all,

I like the idea but what about having that as part of the 2nd phase
contents? At the end of each section a "things to test" subsection - like
this it can be easily related to the in-depth discussion of the
vulnerability that (I assume) will be part of that section and can be more
easily mantained than a separate document.

I think a way forward (even before we have the definitive list of sections)
could be to write up one of the sections, so that we agree on the content of
the section. What about something along the lines of:

  1. Vulnerability overview (short version)
  2. Why/when it happens?
  3. In-depth technical vulnerability description
  4. How to test for it
  5. Drawbacks of the testing (things that can go untested / things that can
not be tested)
  6. "Thing to test" / "Things to try"
  7. How to solve it? (Is this outside the scope of the "testing" group?)

If we agree on this I would pick up a not-so-widely published/discussed
vulnerability (e.g. not SQL injection or XSS) to try and test the content
structure fits us.
