A simple one, but watch for overflow. If you allow a user to input, use
edits. Do not rely on HTML or Java edits, as they can bypass those by
typing in the URL. It has also been recommended that all code gets
compiled, so the code can not be compromised. I have also heard of placing
the website code on a server with a lot of memory, and placing the entire
website on a CD-ROM, so it can not be defaced.
