Hi Everyone,

It's time once again to create the Top Ten Web Hacking Techniques of  
the past year. Every year Web security produces a plethora of new and  
extremely clever hacking techniques (loosely defined, not specific  
incidents), many of which are published in hard to find locations.  
2008 was no different. As we've done for the past two years, we're  
looking for the best of the best. This effort serves as a way to  
create a centralized community reference and recognize those  
exceptional researchers who have contributed to our collective  

This year is special, because the researcher who places #1 will not  
only receive praise amongst his peers, but also receive one free pass  
to attend the BlackHat USA Briefings 2009! Over $1,000 (US) value.  
Generously sponsored by BlackHat. Winners will be chosen by a panel of  
judges (Rich Mogull, Chris Hoff, HD Moore, Jeff Forristal) on the  
basis of novelty, impact, and pervasiveness.

We’re also going to need your help. We’re building the living list of  
everything found so far. If anything is missing, and we’re positive  
there is because last year had over 80, we’d appreciate it if you  
could post a comment containing the link. Thank you and good luck!
