Browser toolbar to check site security
Security researcher David Maynor hopes that his credit-card data has been stolen for the last time.
Tired of insecure sites losing his data, the chief technology officer
at Errata Security, said the company plans to release a toolbar for
major browsers that will check visited Web sites for obvious security
issues. The add-on software will check for twenty signs -- such as the
version numbers of the Web server and the content management system --
to make sure that the site has no obvious flaws.
