Over thirty international security organisations have come together, to publish a list of the 25 most dangerous programming errors leading to vulnerabilities that can be exploited for cybercrime and espionage.

Organisations that contributed to the compilation of the list include, McAfee, Microsoft, Oracle and Symantec as well as organisations such as the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and the Web Application Security Consortium (WASC).

This is a MUST Read Publication everybody, please learn and try applying these practices as part of your security awareness program.
