 QA interviews most popular questions and answers

Named most popular kinds of testing?

Manual functional, load testing, stress testing, volume testing, performance testing,  regression, acceptance, security and access control, cross-browser, cross-platform;

What is bug?

A software bug is an error, flaw, failure or fault in a computer program or system that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways. Most bugs arise from mistakes and errors made by people in either a program’s source code or its design, or in frameworks and operating systems used by such programs, and a few are caused by compilers producing incorrect code.

Which test cannot be automated?

Really hard to automate test connected with UI, so as for me correct answer is UI test. But now possible to compare screens of web pages so even UI test could be automated, so you will can say none and start discussion

Shutter like default tool for QA screenshots

Only Ubuntu only hardcore, Shutter installation sudo:

  1. You can add a PPA to your system with a single line in your terminal. Open a terminal and enter:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa

2. Now, as a one-off, you should tell your system to pull down the latest list of software from each archive it knows about, including the PPA you just added:

sudo apt-get update

3. Install Shutter

sudo apt-get install shutter

If you are using the latest Ubuntu (or any other debian-based distribution) you will notice that some features of Shutter are disabled by default.

You need to install two additional packages to enable these features again:

Automation Trends of 2016 and Security testing

According to the seventh edition of the World Quality Report, co-sponsored by Capgemini, Sogeti, and HP based on a global market research study conducted with 1,560 senior IT executives and testing leaders from 32 countries:

  • Continuous and automated security testing will be a key strategy
  • Agile and DevOps will take a front seat in testing
  • Predictive Analysis will be a major enabler to ensure on-time and efficient application delivery

Customer and business assurance will be the focus area
Functional Security Tests.
These are essentially the same as automated acceptance tests, but targeted at verifying that security features such as
authentication and logout, work as expected. They can mostly be automated using existing acceptance testing browser automation tools like Selenium/WebDriver.

Specific non-functional tests against known weaknesses.
Includes testing known weaknesses and mis-configurations

SQL injection is a code injection technique, used to attack data-driven applications, in which nefarious SQL statements are inserted into an entry field for execution (e.g. to dump the database contents to the attacker).SQL injection must exploit a security vulnerability in an application’s software, for example, when user input is either incorrectly filtered for string literal escape characters embedded in SQL statements or user input is notstrongly typed and unexpectedly executed. SQL injection is mostly known as an attack vector for websites but can be used to attack any type of SQL database.
