The May 2015 digital issue of BZ Media’s SD Times is available for your reading pleasure. Our cover story is on application security, and why we’re STILL writing about cross-site scripting and SQL vulnerabilities. You’d think that with all the tremendous work being done in computer science that these vulnerabilities would be a thing of the past. Read editor-in-chief David Rubinstein’s report suggesting new ways to look at the problem, including taking security out of developers’ hands!
