Common security flaws leave applications open to amateur hackers

Quote:
The software industry's inability to reduce the number of security flaws in its code is fueling an age of the "everyday hacker," criminals who can exploit vulnerabilities with a minimum of technical skills, Security testing firm Vercode's latest State of Software Security (SoSS) report suggests.

Of the 22,430 applications submitted to the firm's code analysis service in an 18-month period ending June 2012, only 13 percent of web applications were able to pass the generic OWASP Top 10 list of security problems.

When developers still can't properly prevent SQL injections (read: it only takes 1 line of code), I'm not surprised security flaws are rampant.
