WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of SaaS-based website security solutions, fifth installment of the Website Security Statistics Report, providing a one-of-a-kind perspective on the state of website security and the issues that organizations must address to avert attack. WhiteHat has been publishing the report, which highlights the top ten vulnerabilities, vertical market trends and new attack vectors, since 2006. During that time, the industry has seen the Web-layer rise to be the number one target for malicious online attacks, with website hacking evolving from exploration and experimentation, to exploitation and monetization. In addition to the regular roster of vulnerabilities that repeatedly make the top ten list, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) has joined the mix in Q2 of 2008. On a positive note, 66 percent of all vulnerabilities identified have been remediated, underscoring the value of a consistent website vulnerability management program.
