Rails is secure

Hi!

I think many of us share the perception of Rails being a “secure”
framework.
And that might well be true, because we need less code to get things
done and
less code means a better overview of what’s happening.
But though Rails seems to be safer, doesn’t allow us to lean back.
There has
been a security bug in Rails last year and even in Ruby.

In fact most of the security issues with web sites or web
applications don’t
necessarily stem from the programming language or framework we use,
but affect
web applications in general.

I’ve therefore started a new web site about Ruby on Rails - it’s
about the
technologies around Rails and it’s about its security.

                  It's at http://www.rorsecurity.info/

I kindly ask you to take a look at it, put a link on your blog and
tell others
to spread the word and make Ruby on Rails THE secure framework.
In the next few months I will address the secure configuration of web
servers,
how to securely set up MySQL, Rails and Subversion. Also the common
attacks,
such as SQL injection, Cross Site Scripting and many more, will be
addressed,
as well as its countermeasures.

Best regards,
