The Web Application Security Consortium (WASC) is pleased to announce
the WASC Web Application Security Statistics Project 2008. This
initiative is a collaborative industry wide effort to pool together
sanitized website vulnerability data and to gain a better understanding
about the web application vulnerability landscape.

The statistics was compiled from web application security assessment
projects which were made by the following companies in 2008 (in
alphabetic order):

* Blueinfy
* Cenzic with Hailstorm
* DNS with WebInspect
* Encription Limited
* HP Application Security Center with WebInspect
* Positive Technologies with MaxPatrol
* Veracode with Veracode Security Review
* WhiteHat Security with WhiteHat Sentinel

The statistics includes data about 12186 sites with 97554 detected
vulnerabilities.

on websites, particular in those in custom web applications, through a
manual or automated process and would like to participate please let us
know. Please contact Sergey Gordeychik (gordey_at_ptsecurity.com).
