Updated list of top 20 security weaknesses

SANS released version 6.0 of their top 20 list of information security vulnerabilities today. In addition to the Windows, UNIX, and networking specific sections of the list, a section on cross-platform applications has been added this year. For those of you not familiar with this list, my advice to you is that if you take no other security management action at your place of work this year, at least make certain that your systems are not vulnerable to these few vulnerabilities. The list includes detailed descriptions of each vulnerability complete with recommended mitigating actions. Enjoy!
