Web application security: Testing for vulnerabilities. As the Web grows increasingly social in nature, inversely, it becomes less secure.
In fact, the Web Application Security Consortium (WASC) estimated in early 2009 that 87% of all Web sites were vulnerable to attack (see Resources for links to more information). Although some companies can afford to hire outside security analysts to test for exploits, not everyone has the resources to spend US$20,000 to US$40,000 for an outside security audit. Instead, organizations become reliant on their own developers to understand these threats and make sure their code is devoid of any such vulnerability. To write secure code, you must first understand the threats to which your work is exposed.
This article looks at some of the more popular vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting and SQL injections, and introduces tools you can use to help safeguard not only your sites, but the data and networks that power them.
