I am working towards the goal of a social site, however, being a beginner, I have many questions I need to answer before getting anywhere! One of these is in regards to embedable scripts/ web apps/ widgets. I would like to allow the users of the site to upload web apps or wdigets that can be used on blogs and as standalone apps. However, I'm worried about a few things. 1) security (how to avoid sql injection(this one probably isnt much of a worry), xss etc) and also 2) how to go about storing/hosting. I would like to be able …

I'm looking at getting started with [URL="http://www.wxwidgets.org/"]wxWidgets[/URL].

We are a group of Stanford students hoping to build a tool that measures third-party plug-in performance. A mocked-up prototype of the tool can be found at [url]http://www.stanford.edu/~cliftonc/cgi-bin/[/url] It's becoming more and more popular for publishers of prominent sites, such as Mashable and many media sites, to include third party web apps--for example, the Facebook "Like" button, or the Meebo Bar. But it can often be difficult for publishers to tell how the third party code is effecting the performance of their site. Is the third party code slowing down their pages load time? Is it blocking the rendering of …

Finjan Inc has published its latest Web Security Trends [URL="http://finjan.com/content.aspx?id=827"]report[/URL] which contains everything you would expect, plus something you probably would not: your widgets are out to get you. Widgets, or desktop gadgets if you prefer, are exposing users to a whole host of not so delightful security exploits. Finjan's Malicious Code Research Center (MCRC) discovered that these super cool add-ons can be hot stuff when it comes to security, often containing code that is vulnerable to exploits by hackers and criminals. Finjan's research also suggests that new attacks that exploit the insecurities of widgets and gadgets are imminent. So …
