This is mainly the case because web design people dont really
think about security, because thats not their job.

But it is their job to program web applications? I'd rather think
a web /designer/'s responsibility should be limited to "making it
look good" - maybe using JavaScript for some stuff, but nothing
more.

Of course, that unfortunately does not mean that web application
programmers automatically have a clue on security aspects ...



The real problem is convining everyone that security actually is their job
or concern to some degree or another.  This include each person in each
cubicle in the office place as well as home users.  If we acted with our
homes and cars and bank cards like many do  with their laptops and
desktops, well chaos would truly be the rampant norm.

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
