OWASP Top 10 is a publicly shared standard awareness document for developers of the ten most critical web application security vulnerabilities, according to the Foundation. OWASP understands that a security vulnerability is any weakness that enables a malevolent actor to cause harm and losses to an application’s stakeholders (owners, users, etc.). 

The OWASP Top 10 list is developed by web application security experts worldwide and is updated every couple of years. It aims to educate companies and developers on how to minimize application security risks. 

The latest update of the list was published in 2021, whereas the previous update was in 2017.
