In this prevention guide:

Modern applications include baseline security configurations before they are deployed to an operational production environment. These baseline configurations also include default security controls that define authentication mechanisms, user registration, and component update functions. Default settings in the application stack often expose security vulnerabilities since malicious actors leverage known security controls to gain access to the system. This form of exploit is known as a security misconfiguration attack and is attributed as one of the leading causes of most modern cyber attacks. 

This guide explores the security misconfiguration vulnerability, common misconfigurations, severity level, and effective prevention techniques.
