A New Tool for Web Site Protection
The Department of Homeland Security and Mitre Corp. has announced a plan to help small companies fend off website hackers, according to the Associated Press.
The Common Weakness Enumeration version 2.0 is a catalogue of programming problems that can make software open to hackers, including a list of the top 25 most dangerous errors. It was launched as part of the department’s Software Assurance Program.
The catalogue — and the discussion board that accompanies it — is aimed at computer-programming professionals who write code and build software for websites.
