Hello, I’m a PHP dev, but playing with C# (Visual Studio 2010) right now, and I have a question about connecting to any hosted database.
Let’s say I own a site called FaceBook2.com and I want to develop an app that will allow users to check in-box without a browser.
Can application connecting from client’s OS to host database be totally secure? What about sniffers, hexeditors and cracking?
What do you think? Any ideas (excepting db user privileges)?
