Re: C# Exceptions

Hi Tim,

The web services here are well tested and stable. They have been
tested for OWASP top ten and the owners of web service have their own
security team taking care of the security of web services.

Other things that I'm yet to try are SQL Injection on the desktop
application to see if we can get access to SQL server. Also Code
Injection and command injection are a few other things that we would
be looking at. This wil be done from the UI of the application that's
writen in C#.

Thnx again.

Sorry for the mutiple responses but I missed the rest of what you were
writing. The web server is an interface that can allow other systems
to interact over a network. For example, you can often send SQL
queries to a web server that will pass that query to the database if
the web server does not have any input validation coded in. The
database on the back end will then respond to the query as if it was
supposed to. You will probably need to provide the list with more
information if you want better feedback. If you can afford to purchase
application testing software I would suggest you go that route
(webinspect and such).
