The recent actions of Anonymous and LulzSec have caused developer Justin James to take note. Let us know whether you think your apps could withstand a determined attack.
In the last couple of months, groups such as Anonymous and LulzSec have been tearing through the Internet, getting access to a large number of data storage areas that everyone assumed were highly secured. One of the goals of these groups is to raise awareness of the vulnerabilities, and I know that I certainly took note. I think that a lot of application developers and system administrators have gotten very complacent, and that sense of security is not warranted. How well do you think that the applications you write could withstand a determined attack?
