web application security issues

Throughout this year most of us wouldn’t deny that web application security issues and vulnerabilities has been the biggest issue. SQL Injection, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Websites with malicious codes and data/password stealing codes, are some to name. Its one of two either organizations are spending immensely on securing everything and leaving out securing the web-based apps or simply the majority of malicious activities are just becoming web-based.  


Some great preventative measures are released by the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3); in addition, the WhiteHat Security has great statistics in regards to the same.


CISCO also had a word in their 2008 Annual Report:

“Online security threats continued their growth in 2008. Online criminals combined spam, phishing, botnets, malware, and malicious or compromised websites to create highly effective blended threats that use multiple online vectors to defraud and com promise the security of Internet users.”


Not to forget: Acunetix, WebSense Threat Resource Center, Sophos, APWG, ScanSafe, and many others.


I’m sure we will see some interesting web app security issues in 2009!
