    The Web Application Security Consortium (WASC) issued a Web Application Security Statistic report that shows that most web applications are vulnerable.

    The most prevalent vulnerabilities found are Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) 41%, Information Leakage 32%, SQL Injection 9% and Predictable Resource Location 8%.

    Cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities (see also here) were not analyzed. The results probably would have been even more disastrous.
