As modern web applications become more and more complexed puzzles and filled with thousands of features catering to a spectrum of user preferences and tastes, the developers are burdened with ever-going responsibilities to keep them sound and safe. There are people (crackers) out there who are trying to make a name by breaking into your backyard or otherwise messing around in any way possible to make your day interesting. Your application or website is potentially vulnerable by simply being online. Everyone including innocent users can mess things up if yours is designed without security awareness. These books of web security are hand selected from Amazon that will get you a strong start on building secure websites applications and avoid being hacked.
