The Se7en Deadly Sins Of Web Security
Websites these days strive to get your attention in the hopes that you will stick around long enough to buy a product or two from them. But, not all websites take security as seriously as they should. I have seen websites for financial services organizations that only permitted a 4 character password, ones that would expose customer data with a simple trick. These are just some examples that I’ve been through in which I will highlight the errors that can happen when deploying a site. I will provide examples of poor implementations, code errors discuss how security can be better deployed.
