Ten years ago, very few networks had a firewall; today, they're ubiquitous. The newest target is the workstation: client-side attacks have increased because direct attacks on servers aren't so easy anymore. Moreover, as new defenses are raised, information flows are increasingly embedded into Web applications, making them extremely valuable as well, and, thus, the next target. This article describes some of these new threats.
web application security, SQL injection, worms, viruses, XSS worms, back doors, attacks
