Accountable Web Software … IRS freefile?

January 26, 2009

Just curious- did you know that the IRS now allows anyone to file for free through their website now?

This is a cool thing because we all fear making mistakes when filing our taxes!

Your personal income and financial information should be kept safe.  At least they have a track record that makes you want to use their website

I WILL NOT BE USING THE IRS FREEFILE SITE.

Software Threat Taxonomy Confusion

January 12, 2009

You say Potato, I say Potato…

First, we had the OWASP Top Ten, then the WASC Threat Classifications, now  CWE/SANS joins the fray with their ‘Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

I’m glad to see Washington engaging and educating on the software security problem, it will be interesting to see how aligned or competitively they perform.

Do you think this new list will help clarify appsec issues, or create more doublespeak?
