Journal Journal: Mozilla 1.0 RC1

Journal Journal: Microsoft Store Offline After Insecurity Exposed

I ran across this article at Newsbytes which shows that not even Microsoft's "skilled" programmers can make safe web applications for their insecure software.

The Microsoft Developer Store, located at , used an insecure script to enable users to search for products in a Microsoft SQL database, according to an advisory posted today by an Argentinean security researcher to an online security mailing list.
As a result of the vulnerability, malicious users could have caused the Microsoft server to execute any command, according to the message posted to Vuln-Dev by Cesar Cerrudo."
