A few weeks ago Wallarm has launched a hackathon to create a machine learning / AI model to detect attacks among normal web requests. The competition was run on Kaggle as InClass. In this competition, Kagglers were asked to develop models that identify injections among neutral input vectors using neural networks or other ML techniques. Wallarm has open-sourced one of the TensorFlow-based models solving this problem and made it available to the competitors as a…

The traditional way to do it is using signatures and regular expressions (regex). Some sets of signatures are open-sourced such as Core Rule Set, others are commercial sources of signatures. Although wide-spread, classifying inputs with the help of signatures is not…
