Web applications are often dependent on other applications. These applications can also contain vulnerabilities. To prevent malicious attacks through such vulnerable applications, it is important to fix vulnerabilities by so-called patches or workarounds.

The basis of this is a well-designed patch management process: An organisation continuously monitors new vulnerabilities, assesses them and implements changes based on this assessment. It should not be forgotten to install patches for web servers (e.g. Apache), application servers (e.g. Websphere), content management systems (e.g. Joomla) and libraries (e.g. OpenSSL).
