News: Website and app security tips

TechRepublic has an interesting article “Website and app security tips for software developers” that talks in a very short space about a whole bunch of things, from the “shelf life of software developers” to the advice on security for the website developer.

It provides in particular an interesting insight into why a person thoroughly familiar with security made security mistakes again and again.

I know why I made those mistakes — it was either the hubris of “I can roll my own better than off-the-shelf,” or the idea that slapping something together quickly would be fine “for now” and I would pay the technical debt off later. I was wrong on both counts, every single time.

How often do we get trapped like that?
