Preventing injection attacks and securing your website

Submitted by markoshust Mon, 09/21/2009 - 00:00

Injection attacks and vulnerabilities are extremely common, and can be prevented in just about any case with proper coding and setting permissions correctly. There are a vast array of cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and worms out there (I’m sure you’ve stumbled on a site with the words ‘viagra’ or ‘xanax’ in the page, and it looks very out-of-place and not consistent with the site’s content). These are usually caused by bots searching the web for securities vulnerabilities.
