Issue No. 02 - March-April (2003 vol. 1)
<p>The authors discuss software security as an awareness issue, because software that is unaware of its potential vulnerabilities has no chance of being secure. Only by being aware of potential threats and using vigilant defensive countermeasures can we hope to write secure applications, and we can only achieve security through awareness and understanding of these issues.</p>
