    Web Application Security Failure Example from a Recruiter's Web Site


    Hello all,

    I develop web applications for a living, and frequently get into discussions about session management, query strings, security, etc etc. You know the drill.

    Anyway, today i found an interesting security problem from a random person visiting my site that illustrates the importance of proper Authentication and Authorization techniques.

    I did a quick blog with screenshots. Check out:

    How do other developers address these types of issues?

    Cheers,

    Reid
