Tom has an interesting post on Security via obscurity

August 7th, 2006 by Pete

I spotted a nice post on Tom's blog today that was posted a couple of days ago. Toms post is titled "Security via obscurity..." and it talks about an email sent to Tom about his AskTom site displaying schema details when it errors. Tom points out that his site is not vulnerable to SQL Injection as he uses binds for all dynamic SQL and does not concatenate. This is an interesting post around SQL injection issues and security in general, particlularly the issues around defence in depth and security through obscurity.
