Web technologies are widespread as a means of e-government services, business implementations, social networking and social media. It brings a number of information security issues and becomes an attractive target for web system malware. The paper analyzes the web security components, methodological approaches to web security assessment, the methods for detecting gaps of web-applications, and reputation systems web-sites.
