Eradicate the Most Notorious Insecure Designs and Coding Vulnerabilities Fully updated to cover the latest security issues, 24 Deadly Sins of Software Security reveals the most common design and coding errors and explains how to fix each one-or better yet, avoid them from the start.

They have completely revised the book to address the most recent vulnerabilities and have added five brand-new sins. This practical guide covers all platforms, languages, and types of applications. Eliminate these security flaws from your code: SQL injection Web server- and client-related vulnerabilities Use of magic URLs, predictable cookies, and hidden form fields Buffer overruns Format string problems Integer overflows C++ catastrophes Insecure exception handling Command injection Failure to handle errors Information leakage Race conditions Poor usability Not updating easily Executing code with too much privilege Failure to protect stored data Insecure mobile code Use of weak password-based systems Weak random numbers Using cryptography incorrectly Failing to protect network traffic Improper use of PKI Trusting network name resolution From the Publisher Michael Howard is is a principal security program manager on the Trustworthy Computing Group’s Security Engineering team at Microsoft.
