Modern applications follow an API-based architecture to enforce agility, where the software is composed of multiple logically distinct components. While exchanging data and functionality through APIs, these components are maintained independently and reused between various applications.

In such complex architectures of multiple components, many vulnerabilities often result from the lack of appropriate component validation. Vulnerable and outdated components often introduce security issues unknown to developers, making them soft targets for hackers looking to exploit a vulnerable system.

This guide teaches outdated and vulnerable components, how they impact an application stack, their severity, and prevention techniques.
