Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

There used to be a question on SO to the effect of "If even Jeff Atwood can make (insert some grave mistake here), what do I need to take into consideration when building a secure web site?"

I found that a very useful resource to point people to who ask about "how do I make xyz totally secure".

I would like to flag it for a historical lock, but it's no longer visible - the great weakness of the "let people who care about them make a case for undeletion" approach. But that's a different discussion.

Could someone point me to the right URL?

@Oleksi thanks, but nope - the one I'm thinking about had even more upvotes (like 700+) and was about web sites specifically – Pëkka Jul 3 '12 at 0:53

If Jeff Atwood can forget about HttpOnly cookies, sitemaps, and cross-site request forgeries all in the same site, what important thing could I be forgetting as well?

What should every programmer know about web development? was migrated to Programmers.SE. It is still open.

FWIW, I still use this as an example of "the right way to do a wiki question on SE" (over 100 revisions to the top answer, the last just two days ago). – Shog9 Jul 3 '12 at 1:50
@Shog9 22 revs, 18 users 47% naeblis? either all revs got merged on the migration, or you exaggerated a little bit – ajax333221 Jul 3 '12 at 3:06
@ajax333221: Yeah, revisions are discarded upon migration - there were 88 revisions to the answer on Stack Overflow. – Shog9 Jul 3 '12 at 3:08
