Thank you for reading the Linux Advisory Watch Security Newsletter. The
purpose of this document is to provide our readers with a quick summary of
each week's vendor security bulletins and pointers on methods to improve
the security posture of your open source system.

Vulnerabilities affect nearly every vendor virtually every week, so be
sure to read through to find the updates your distributor have made
available.

Vulnerabilities in Web Applications
-----------------------------------
This paper aims to raise awareness by discussing common vulnerabilities
and mistakes in web application development. It also considers mitigating
factors, strategies and corrective measures.
