[/highlight] The OWASP Top 10 list publicizes the most critical web application security flaws as determined by Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a nonprofit, vendor-independent IT security organization formed in 2001. In this article, we preview the 2013 edition of this popular security resource. (This review is based on the 2013 release candidate.) The OWASP Top 10 Is Revised Every Three Years OWASP aims to update the Top 10 once every three years as IT security threats evolve over time, and the OWASP Top 10 for 2013 will be released in May 2013. The original Top 10 release occurred in 2003, and was followed by the 2004, 2007 and 2010 editions.
