On February 15, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) came out with its 2013 list of candidates for the Top 10 web application security flaws. The challenge is that while the Top 10 details security flaws, these flaws don’t map cleanly to requirements.

During a recent visit to a client site, I took part in a discussion where the Development Department and the Security Department were arguing over which group was responsible for the security of web applications. Security felt it was the responsibility of the developers, and the developers felt it was the responsibility of security. I commonly see this debate taking place inside organizations, s...

I still believe the best phone for hackers is the Nokia N900 and it is a shame that Nokia decided to go the way of Microsoft. I personally believe that Nokia should have gone the route of an Android/Linux hybrid mobile operating system, but that’s just my opinion...
