Web applications are important, popular and common distributed systems. With the growth of internet and web, competition has increased to get web applications online. In this competition era, web applications are developed in short time frames and with number of vulnerabilities. Web developers often struggle with development timelines rather than security certifications. With many known and unknown vulnerabilities, minimizing application-s vulnerabilities is a daunting challenge. These vulnerabilities represent a security risk which can lead to financial damage or loss of reputation. This paper ranks common vulnerabilities, attacks and also calculates risk using CVSS (common vulnerability scoring system) vulnerability metrics which are publicly available and used for ranking. It provides platform for understanding of vulnerabilities, ranking them, calculating vulnerability risk and using them to decide and improve the security of web applications.
