The clock is ticking as web applications take center stage as the point of entry for malicious activity and development teams are asked to deliver new applications at breakneck speed. It’s only a matter of time before the two converge and your business has to do damage control. The number of websites infected with malware and malvertisements in the third quarter of 2010 is estimated at 1.2 million, double its estimate from the same time period last year. Also, operating system vulnerabilities are declining while web and database vulnerabilities, such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting (XSS), are on the rise – especially XSS, which, in 2010, was 17 times greater than it was in 2002.
