[Owasp-testing] Brainstorming about the new Index

Hi all,

my first post and 2 cents here:

I guess we should make a difference between the techniques of unit
testing and the results of UT. Even if UT can be used to... e.g.,
discover BO or SQL-injection vulns.

Although, I noticed that there is an Appendix for fuzzing which is
another technique for discovering (some) vulnerabilities.

A new question: imagine the following situation: The pen tester
discovers a SQL-injection vulnerability in a webapp he is auditing. This
vuln. allows him to store some javascript in the Db and therefore
perpetrate a XSS attack (incubated) on the users of this webapp.  My
question is where do we describe this attacks? (I think they are
important enough to be included somewhere.)
