This week was strangely quiet. Nothing much on the frameworks front; Open BlueDragon and Railo kept to themselves. Hmmm, looks like everyone is heads down coding… let’s see what they’ve got for us.

SQL Injection attacks still bugging you? Simon Whatley has posted on how to fix an SQL Injection hack, and also how to protect against a malicious attack in the first place (hat tip to Steve Bryant). You know what they say about prevention being better than cure… Peter Boughton has released an Eclipse IDE plugin called QueryParam Scanner which looks through code to find and report on queries with unprotected input parameters. No excuses now – lock down that code!
Some bad news UK developers: UK conference CFDevCon has been canned.
