Coming soon: SQL injection attacks targeting Flash, JavaScript

Hackers are prepping SQL injection attacks to exploit vulnerabilities in Flash- and Java-built applications, a security expert told SQL injection has been the most common attack method of late, and Jacob West, security group manager of Fortify Software Inc., said that Flash, JavaScript and other Web 2.0 technologies are now at a greater risk because they tend to run on end-user machines rather than on servers. When individuals or IT pros process data on the client side, they must be extra careful about where they execute the validation, West said.

Apptix hosts Microsoft Office Communications Server

Apptix this week added hosted Microsoft Office Communications Server to its mix of communications and collaboration services for small and medium-sized businesses. OCS 2007 adds Web conferencing and business-class instant messaging to the menu. Apptix already hosts Microsoft Exchange email and SharePoint collaboration for customers.

The Herndon, Va.-based company also launched a new tiered partner program for resellers that will enable them to co-brand or white-label services and offer whatever combination their customers want. VARs manage their own end-user account and can add or subtract services as needed via Apptix's Web console. The company's support backstops the VARs' own support services.
