Are you reading OWASP Top 10 2007? Just curious since you list the index
numbers for these topics that do not match the 2010 list.
Anyways, in simple terms,
A3 Broken Authentication and Session Mgmt - Authentication exists but can
be easily circumvented to gain access to a protected resource
A8 Failure to Restrict URL Access - No Authentication present, anonymous
users can gain access to the resources w/o being challenged.
Please refer to the most updated list.
