Security Vulnerabilities Created By Bad Coding

Many organization heads know how to protect themselves from online attacks: . they set up firewalls, antivirus programs, and other software that can prevent potential harm or a breach into your security system. However, it’s an entirely different matter if attacks are triggered by internal causes.  LifeHacker says that breaches caused by internal staff error alone account for 40% to 70% of reported breaches. 

One potential internal cause that can lead to a security breach is weak coding. Codes are basically the backbone of a program. Exploiting the vulnerability of a code is like striking a person from behind. This could only lead to two outcomes, either the attacker leaves a mark, or the victim dies. That’s why it’s important that your coding be free of app vulnerabilities. Read on for more. . – Robert Cabigao
