In A10, it already says this under: How do I prevent this?


5.       Backend and other connections should also use SSL/TLS or other
encryption technologies.


And I added another scenario:


Scenario #3: Site simply uses standard ODBC/JDBC for database
connection, not realizing all this traffic is in the clear.

A clear text ODBC connection between the mid-tier and back end would be
covered under A10 - Insufficient Transport Layer Protection  and should
be spelled out as one of the examples. Mention JDBC as well.


Since we are updating the OWASP Top Ten, may I assume that we could also
spend a little time synching up the OWASP Web Services Top Ten?
Likewise, since Cloud is becoming important, how about us proactively
announcing the creation of the OWASP Cloud Top Ten?
