Ok for me.

Only to be used for extreme abuse, we should not waste efforts on witch
hunting.

Seems reasonable to me.

Yes - Curphey blogged about it and it's been on the OWASP feed too.  The
question is whether/how to respond to ridiculous abuses of the OWASP
name like this.  I'd like to have some kind of protocol to follow here,
like...

 

1)      Nice letter explaining the brand and the violation

2)      If unfixed, warning letter explaining consequences (wall of
shame)

3)      If unfixed, wall of shame

 

Agree?

About Barracuda Web Application Controllers

Barracuda Web Application Controllers, including both the Barracuda Web
Application Firewall and Barracuda Application Gateway, protect Web
sites from attackers leveraging protocol or application vulnerabilities
to instigate unauthorized access, data theft, denial of service or
defacement. Designed to deliver comprehensive Web security, Barracuda
Web Application Controllers act as a proxy for Web traffic to insulate
Web servers from direct access by hackers, enforces data security
standards, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI
DSS), and secures Web sites against the top 10 major Web vulnerabilities
compiled by Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). Available in
two models, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides Web
applications and Web services with complete protection against malicious
attacks. The Barracuda Application Gateway, also available in three
models, enhances the powerful Barracuda Web Application Firewall to
integrate traffic management capabilities for increased performance and
availability.

I don't think *anything* can. I deliberately made some of the Top 10 NP
hard problems to avoid claims such as this. 

 

thanks,

Andrew
