In this paper, we show several vulnerabilities in the ordering mechanism of one of Malaysia’s online food ordering services company (which we will call “Company X”) website. In particular, we show that the system is open to several kinds of abuse, demonstrating two proof-of-concept attacks we carried out, as well as discuss more potentially disruptive theoretical attacks. We also suggest several countermeasures to rectify the issues, that are not only applicable to Company X website, but also to other similar online ordering systems.
