Writing Secure Code (2nd Edition)
by Michael Howard and David LeBlanc

My order from the USA finally arrived this morning.

From amazon.co.uk
Keep black-hat hackers at bay with the tips and techniques in this entertaining, eye-opening book! Developers will learn how to padlock their applications throughout the entire development process—from designing secure applications to writing robust code that can withstand repeated attacks to testing applications for security flaws. Easily digested chapters reveal proven principles, strategies, and coding techniques. The authors—two battle-scarred veterans who have solved some of the industry’s toughest security problems—provide sample code in several languages. This edition includes updated information about threat modeling, designing a security process, international issues, file-system issues, adding privacy to applications, and performing security code reviews. It also includes enhanced coverage of buffer overruns, Microsoft .NET security, and Microsoft ActiveX development, plus practical checklists for developers, testers, and program managers.

My review of this will be coming at a later data

It quite literally blows my mind the level of cyber-espionage, hacking, phising, and outright destructiveness individuals and organizations heap upon the Internet and people in cyberworld. It's so sad that we live in a world with so many cockroaches, but if not this, evil comes in so many forms.

It seems the more dependent we get on computer tech and 'on the grid', the more insecure our lives become.
If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning
