Default Top 25 Programming Errors list updated

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...ed-933535.html

Just as they did last year, over thirty international security organisations have come together, to publish a list of the 25 most dangerous programming errors leading to vulnerabilities that can be exploited for cybercrime and espionage.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

This might sound rude, but is it just me, or does the list make the word SNPFU? - "Situation Normal, Programmers Fouled Up", come to mind... not that anyone is perfect.

The one on includes/requires/etc that is apparently so prevalent with PHP, is actually one I've seen in action while auditing stuff that's already been deployed. To the point in fact, that some people I know have gotten a tad paranoid about what they import, and where they upload edits lol.
