Web 2.0 security under increasing scrutiny

February 22, 2008

Oh dear, I keep seeing stories like this warning of the inherent security risks in web 2.0 sites.

Yes, Facebook etc can be used to launch attacks or lure unsuspecting users to pages which contain malicious code but the stories I’m seeing keep talking about companies being put off implementing their own web 2.0 features by this.

Don’t let it put you off; architect it properly, monitor it and input to the conversation so you know whats going on and you should keep abreast of any issues.

If you’re planning another Facebook though then maybe try putting security at the heart of it 😉
