Hi All,

I have following issues with my web application
> Cross-site scripting
> Cross-site request forgery
> SSI directive
> Server Error Message
> Possilble parameter based buffer overflow
> Potential filenames found in comments
> Hidden form value
> Form autocomplete active

Is there any security tool which resolves all these issues, so that I can integrate it to my web application.

Please help me in resolving this, its urgent.

Thanks in advances.

Thanks & Regards
Vishwanath GNV

The most important thing you can learn about security is that it is not a tool (or several tools) - it's a process. There's not one single thing you can do to make an application secure, there are always various interlocking steps you need to take.

Most of what you describe depends on your code, so there's no tool that can do this for you. You need to write the code in a way that it does not permit any of these to happen.

The Security FAQ has links to a number of articles that discuss some of these topics, and can get you started implementing them.
