Some great material there, David. Give us a shout if you'd like help transposing this information into the Business Logic section of the guide.

I think all the contributors to this thread have been very helpful. 

I have to admit that I added some of the suggestions to section 4.7 
Business Logic when the request was made to come up with ideas. My 
thoughts at the time were to have them as examples, rather than being 
numbered tests like in the rest of the testing guide. 

Some other sources of ideas, or that might be referenced are: 

   The Common Misuse Scoring System (CMSS): Metrics for Software 
Feature Misuse Vulnerabilities 
   NISTIR 7864 

   Business Logic Abuse, Ponemon 

We should remember that applications might be used to attack other 
users and other systems. Additionally, the trusted insider might be 
able to undertake attacks that other users are unable to commit. The 
attacks in online gaming sometimes add extra insight into what might 
could occur in other areas, e.g.: 

   Security Issues in Online Games 
   Jianxin Jeff Yan and Hyun-Jin Choi 

   Securing Virtual Worlds Against Real Attack 
   Dr. Igor Muttik, McAfee 

My thoughts on 4.7 would be to use the ideas in v3 and this thread to 
write up something generic, describe how best to identify suitable 
tests, add plenty of interesting references, and have a small number 
of single-page *example* business logic flaws, maybe boxed out so they 
are not mistaken as the only tests that need to be performed.
