'Not Much Resistance at the Door'


Websites are as vulnerable as ever, according to a survey of Web application security professionals who test sites for security holes.

The survey, conducted by researcher Jeremiah Grossman on his blogsite, polled more than 60 security pros, 63 percent who work for vendors or consultants, 23 percent for enterprises, 5 percent for government, and 10 percent for other types of organizations. These are the guys in the trenches who hammer on Websites regularly -- 53 percent said all or almost all of their job is dedicated to Web app security (versus development, general security, and incident response); 28 percent said about half; and 20 percent said "some."
