OWASP Juice Shop
OWASP Juice Shop is probably the most modern and sophisticated insecure web application! It can be used in security trainings, awareness demos, CTFs and as a guinea pig for security tools! Juice Shop encompasses vulnerabilities from the entire OWASP Top Ten along with many other security flaws found in real-world applications!
The application contains a vast number of hacking challenges of varying difficulty where the user is supposed to exploit the underlying vulnerabilities. The hacking progress is tracked on a score board. Finding this score board is actually one of the (easy) challenges!
The most trustworthy online shop out there. ( @dschadow) — The best juice shop on the whole internet! ( @shehackspurple) — Actually the most bug-free vulnerable application in existence! ( @vanderaj) — First you 😂😂then you 😢 ( @kramse) — But this doesn’t have anything to do with juice. ( @coderPatros’ wife)

Hacking Instructor Tutorials
Click on a link in the table below to launch a step-by-step tutorial for that particular challenge on our public https://demo.owasp-juice.shop instance. If you are entirely new to the Juice Shop, we recommend doing them in the listed order. With the (optional) Tutorial Mode you can even enforce that the 10 tutorial challenges have to be performed gradually in order to unlock the other 96 challenges.

For 27 challenges an additional coding challenge is available. In their “Find It” phase they teach
spotting vulnerabilities in the actual codebase of the Juice Shop. In the “Fix It” phase the user then chooses the most appropriate
fix from a list. Solve any of the hacking challenges below to enable a button on the Score Board that launches the corresponding
