Biggest website security weaknesses

Posted on 12 November 2009. WhiteHat Security released a report assembled from real-world website security data, is a high-level perspective on major website security issues that continue to compromise corporate data across all industries.

The report contains data collected between January 1, 2006 and October 1, 2009, and finds that the percentage of high, critical or urgent issues continue to slowly increase. 83 percent of websites have had a high, critical or urgent issue over their lifetime and 64 percent of websites currently have a high, critical or urgent issue. Of the 22,000 vulnerabilities identified, almost 9,000 remain open, which means encouragingly that the majority – over 13,000 – have been closed.  Help Net Security
