I think it's a great idea.  There is an absolute ton of COBOL out there that
quite literally drives the economy.  We ought to have some guidelines for
checking whether it's secure or not.  Go for it!!

Subject: [Owasp-codereview] Cobol code review

 

I'd like to add a stub about a code review for the COBOL language .
Before doing it, I want to know if it's worth writing a code review for the
COBOL 
language. Indeed, it's an old language, out of usage for the current
application and 
it may seem to be out of blue talking about this language. 
Nevertheless, we were asked to do a code review for the COBOL language: our
client 
has developed thousands of line of code in COBOL, it still owns some old
fashion
applications and it has no intention to switch to a newer technology. 
Maybe other people deal with the COBOL language and are interested in
mitigate potentially vulnerabilities 
due to bad programming. For this reason we were wondering if it's noteworthy
to share 
our experience with the OWASP community members. 
Any suggest is appreciate
