Item description for Hack Proofing ColdFusion by Steve Casco...

The only way to stop a hacker is to think like one!
ColdFusion is a Web application development tool that allows programmers to quickly build robust applications using server-side markup language. It is incredibly popular and has both an established user base and a quickly growing number of new adoptions. It has become the development environment of choice for e-commerce sites and content sites where databases and transactions are the most vulnerable and where security is of the utmost importance.
Several security concerns exist for ColdFusion due to its unique approach of designing pages using dynamic-page templates rather than static HTML documents. Because ColdFusion does not require that developers have expertise in Visual Basic, Java and C++; Web applications created using ColdFusion Markup language are vulnerable to a variety of security breaches.
Hack Proofing ColdFusion 5.0 is the seventh edition in the popular Hack Proofing series and provides developers with step-by-step instructions for developing secure web applications.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hack Proofing ColdFusion?

Not a good source  Jan 12, 2006
I was really disappointed in this book. It's not a very good source of "hack proofing" I was hoping to have something that I could use as a training guide for other developers, but this was certainly not it. The book contains information regarding locking down the web server's operating system and changing some settings in the CF Administrator, but it is not at all an effective tool for training developers or yourself in producing hack-proof ColdFusion applications.

Skip this one... It's not nearly worth the price.
Too disorganized to be useful  Aug 27, 2002
I was really looking forward to reading this book. Given the complexity of maintaining a secure web site, a concise organized approach to the securing Cold Fusion web sites sounded like agreat book topic.

Unfortunately, this book wasn't the answer. The text appears to be written by multiple authors who weren't interacting with one another and who didn't have an effective editor to channel their ideas into a logical flow of text. Similar topics are covered multiple times throughout the book, and in some cases virtually identical descriptions and disclaimers get repeated. Other times detailed topical points are mentioned briefly only to have the relevant background presented much later in a different context. This book requires frequent usage of the index and table of contents to pull together the information into a useful manner. A very frustrating read.

This book is one to pass on. I'd strongly recommend Ben Forta's ColdFusion 5 Web Application Construction Kit and/or The O'Reilly "Programming Cold Fusion".... Both provide logical well organized coverage of security material and also provide a wealth of general Cold Fusion tips and techniques.

A MUST read for CF Developers  May 2, 2002
With the ease of ColdFusion comes many novice developers.
This book will help developers find their troubled security issues in their code.
Love this book.
