With respect to the RSS issue, I assume that the author of the article was trying to explain in a very poorly-worded way discoveries like these:

http://www.spidynamics.com/assets/documents/Hackin gFeeds.pdf (warning: pdf)
http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/cross-context-scrip ting-with-sage/

etc, etc.

However, I agree that most of the points were simply various different ways unchecked user input can be exploited, and the banking example was absolutely horrible.

My overall impression was that the author either had no idea what he/she was talking about or was aiming for a much less computer-literate audience than slashdot.
