The Hands-On, Practical Guide to Preventing Ajax-Related Security Vulnerabilities More and more Web sites are being rewritten as Ajax applications; even traditional desktop software is rapidly moving to the Web via Ajax. But, all too often, this transition is being made with reckless disregard for security. If Ajax applications arena€™t designed and coded properly, they can be susceptible to far more dangerous security vulnerabilities than conventional Web or desktop software.
