re: The SQL Injection Disconnection
As ccampbell notes, companies can be slow to change their security practices - and for a variety of reasons.

I think that the article's main point that the security response to SQLi is not matching the threat is very valid. In particular, the lack of security products to deal with SQLi is a very telling indicator.

Talking about the percentage of security spending that goes to one problem or another is, in itself, a really interesting conversation. More money doesn't always mean more security, of course. So is spending a reliable indicator of how seriously a threat is being taken?

re: The SQL Injection Disconnection
It should come as no surprise that hackers are focusing on the vulnerabilities that security analysts aren't paying as much attention too.- I think companies are to slow in changing their risk profiles.- Security in your company should be an ever-changing landscape.- It has to evolve and change at the rate the hackers are evolving and changing.
