The Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

leave a comment »

I was just having a Skype chat with Jonathan Benedicto, one of the developers on the Developer Network team, and he pointed out a very valuable and relevant link to me regarding the “Top 25 most dangerous programming errors” all software developers should address in their code.

This isn’t a funny David Letterman Top 10 list. This is a list put together by more than 30 organizations, including the US National Security Agency, the Department of Homeland Security, Microsoft, and Symantec.You can see the news article Jon mentioned to me on the BBS web site. (It’s nice to see the industry work together on broad issues like this.)

For the “meat” of the errors and ways to address them, see the official list, including fixes.

And start plugging any holes you find in your own code!
