« Exchange Server 2003 Security Hardening ... | Main | Design Patterns and Code Access Security... »

SecurityFocus has an article that discusses common attacks and vulnerabilities in e-commerce shopping cart systems, with reference to SecurityFocus vulnerability reports where relevant.

Among the ones mentioned are:

  • SQL Injection
  • Price Manipulation
  • Buffer Overflows
  • Cross-Site Scripting
  • Remote Command Execution
  • Weak authentication and authorization
According to the article "Countermeasures should also include strict input validation routines, a 3-tier modular architecture, use of open-source cryptographic standards, and other secure coding practices."
Nice to see that these were some of the specific things that were addressed as part of DevDays during my Threats and Countermeasures presentation.
