[Owasp-board] OWASP Top 10 ... Done!

Hi Dave, I just had a quick chat with Andrew about one medium change (it was
quicker to talk than to write)

Basically I asked if we could change A3 – Insecure Remote File Include to A3
- Malicious Remote File Execution (or even A3 - Malicious File Execution or
even A3 - Malicious Code Execution) since this covers the PHP remote file
include issue, XSS/XSD Injections, remote file upload via
and using reflection to invoke .Net/Java classes directly. it also makes
reference to the real problem that our web apps today have that their
security (and the surrounding environment) are depended on the non-execution
of malicious code.

Of course one of the solutions for this is to use Sandboxes that limit what
that code can do :)

Jeff, Dave, what do you think? (Andrew was ok with it and (after talking to
Jeff today) is able to make these small changes)

I think that the proposed title is a good compromise between Andrew's
request to have the PHP remote include in there and my request to have
sandbox issue in there (and it affects ALL web apps, so it is not PHP

Sorry for not raising this issue earlier, but I was looking the proposed new
title (which only occurred to me this weekend)
