Typically, users of Web content management systems lack expert knowledge of the technology itself, let alone the security issues therein. Complicating the matter, WCMS vulnerabilities are attractive targets for potential attackers. A security analysis of two popular, open-source WCMSs exposed significant security holes, despite the obvious efforts of their developer communities. These vulnerabilities leave the applications and their nonexpert users open to exploitation.
