This research paper addresses the topic of application logic attack taxonomy that is due to unclear and incorrect implementation in component-based applications. The issue addresses the detection and classification of two separate types of vulnerabilities in component-based applications. The paper completes this aim through organising the classification of each attack and then proposes the classification of logical vulnerabilities and discusses the two distinct forms of weakness and coding faults in the application software found in the mid-level of the framework. The most important argument is to desegregate awareness of attack patterns with boundary profile status relevant to an application logic vulnerability and possible threats. Having review of two different types of attack taxonomies, a logical vulnerability classification based taxonomy is proposed.
