Over the past few days more than 30 exploits have been released focusing on web applications. The exploits focus on SQL injection attacks, which are a major vulnerability lately, and that’s just for published web applications. Many more are being discovered in privately developed websites. It still seems that some developers out there are still not embracing secure coding practices.
Bot activity has still been seen spreading through websites also using these vulnerabilities. Causing normally trustable websites to deliver malware to unsuspecting users. Until all developers change their coding processes, we can expect these exploits and bot activity to keep increasing. In the mean time, we recommend that any applications you are developing undergo testing, and any web applications (such as CMS) you are using stay patched.
