And don’ t forget the basics, if you garantee some basic good pratices like:

•Security decisions should not rely on client-side validations; they are made on the server side.
•A secure approach to exception management is identified. The application fails securely in the event of exceptions.
•Structured exception handling is used.
•Generic error pages with harmless messages are returned to the client.
•Free form input is sanitized to clean malicious data.
•Application does not rely only on request validation.
You cover a big part off the security problems.
