Secure Code With The Microsoft Anti-Cross Site Scripting Library

| 0 comments

Recently I attended a Security Development Lifecycle training course in Dallas, Texas and I must admit while I was aware of many vulnerabilities in web applications, I learned just how easy it is to do some real damage if software engineers don’t fully understand the implications they face when developing a web application.
