>From my point of view, I was fairly neutral on the removal of
"Malicious File Execution" but I would like to continue a statement
I'd made previously on this list. If it continues to deserve a spot on
the list, this is the perfect time to roll XSS into Injection and open
up a spot. After all XSS, at a basic level, is just HTML Injection...
and if we've already got SQL Injection, LDAP Injection and OS Command
Injection, why not bring this one into the injection pile as well?
