As Jason points out, crappy coders are the biggest problem :-)

The crappy code tends to be vulnerable to the following types of attacks:
-SSL Injection Attacks
-Cross Site Scripting Attacks
-Replay Attacks/Cookie theft
-Man-in-the-middle attacks
You can get info on these at the OWASP website. They have a guide that covers many of these problems:

when is secure, secure?
Lo everyone, I wrote a custom authentication handler for PureFTPD, using a combination of authentication methods, for about 4 different types of users. So far, from testing it, it does look to work properly, and does it's job pretty well (and fast). I use #!/usr/bin/perl -W as well as use Strict, and use warnings, and the code returns no errors or warnings when run. I am right to presume that this basically only really tells me the my syntax and structure of the application is right? What's a good way to see whether it is actually SECURE... There is a couple of lines of...

How secure is secure?
Thanks to this group and all the high tech individuals who frequent it I have learned how to protect my PC from the inside out. But what about security risks to my info 'before' it gets to my computer? Like my mail box on the server. Could someone hack into that and thumb through my mail? If so, how would I ever know? (The short story) We have a rogue employee at my work who one day decided to run the web site, she got in tight with the ISP, got tools to set and delete passwords on a protected directory on the server. Who knows if she has telnet access to other things, li... issue

Password it secure?
Yes I just got this baby and I LOVE it! Its great. I have stored all my passwords inside of it (and yes made a few backups from them in secure locations) How secure is this program really? It uses blowfish to encrypt the database but how strong blowfish? 128bits? 256? 448? Anything else I should think about it? I have putted it and its databases inside PGPdisk just to play it safe...but then again Im a paranoid. :) -- Markus Jansson ************************************ My privacy related homepage and PGP keys: ********...

form security against security
i have a form in my website which is to be filled by user and that form stores in database(sql server 2005). but someone told me that anyone can run script  in textboxes in that form and can damage database, so how to avoid such security lack.  it is common practice to use parameterized sql statements or stored procs to insure you are protected from sql injections attacks. if you concatenate user input directly into a sql statement, then you are at risk.Mike Banavige~~~~~~~~~~~~Need a site code sample in a different language?

How secure is secure enough?
July 28, 2008 (Computerworld) This story originally appeared in Computerworld's print edition. If there is a Holy Grail in the information security industry, it surely is the answer to the question, "How secure is secure enough?" It's a question that many security managers have either avoided answering altogether or tried to quickly sidestep by throwing a fistful of mainly pointless operational metrics at anyone who cared to ask. -- "Never d...

Secure connections: how secure are they?
*QUOTE* ......... both useful and malicious information can be transmitted via network connections. Standard solutions protect computers against threats present in standard network connections, but aren't able to counter threats present in secure connections. Verifying the contents of a secure connection is impossible by virtue of its secure nature, as demonstrated by the different types of protection listed above. As a result, malicious data within secure channels can cause a significant amount of damage, and sometimes more than if it were to be transmitted via a standard, non-s...

How secure is AuthenticationTypes.Secure?
I understand that AuthenticationTypes.Secure requests secure authentication using Kerberos or NTLM (??). However, here is a scenario I am trying to understand. Let us say that I am having a regular ASP.NET site - with SSL certificates not installed on the web server. The login sends the request out to an AD server which also does not have certificates installed. However, I have set Secure flag to AuthenticationTypes.Secure. When the username and password data gets transmitted between the application and the LDAP server, how secure are the password and username info? In other words is this in... security issues?
My 13 year old plays Diablo II and wants to game online through and I am nervous leery and uninformed about possible hazards. Which GRC group would be most appropriate?

So when i use DirectoryEntry MyDirectoryObject = new DirectoryEntry(LDAPServerString, UserName,Password, AuthenticationTypes.Serverbind);  I can work with LDAP no problem, create new users etc..  But when I use  DirectoryEntry MyDirectoryObject =  new DirectoryEntry(LDAPServerString, UserName,Password,AuthenticationTypes.Secure);  I get 2 types of errors 1] Unknown error 2] Invalid dn syntax has been specified.
