Applications on World Wide Web have made our daily lives easier with their basic and fast access, neglecting time and place, they have become indispensable. It made Web applications a popular target for malevolent users and increased web security risk. In this study web penetration test which is indispensable for web security and threating risks for web security are mentioned. In Turkey, 12 of the most visited e-commerce sites were scanned as an ordinary user to consider a safety assessment of the general situation of the websites. The knowledge about these sites such as used technologies and infrastructure which considers as vulnerability of sites and can be obtained by the ordinal person who uses penetration tests has been investigated in this study
