eCommerce Security

May 30, 2008 at 2:33 pm Leave a comment

I stumbled across an interesting article on the security of eCommerce sites today. Just yesterday, hackers defaced the Comcast web site, preventing customers from accessing their emails. For eCommerce sites, the customer and associated credit card data is obviously very critical to keep safe. This requires database connections to be very secure and put an emphasis on IT to keep their database software up to date and worry about code vulnerabilities. I was surprised to read that in the US 24% of consumers don’t purchase online because they’re concerned about credit card security.

Also, Akami just released their first State of the Internet report, which has some interesting data around broadband penetration and web site attacks. 6% of all attacks were on MS SQL Server, supporting the issues raised in the eCommerce Times article.
