What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

Very frequently code with SQL-injection issues and other issues is posted in SO.
It is of course possible to add a comment explaining the issue, but it would be nice to tag the question/answer as containing a particular security risk, and to have SO put a link with some explanation about the risk at hand.

Similar to the tags, but an extension thereof.

I think that would qualify rather neatly as a meta-tag, which aren't permitted. –  J. Steen Dec 19 '12 at 15:09
And you can't tag an answer... –  ben is uǝq backwards Dec 19 '12 at 15:12

I doubt that a tag like that would work without changing the system too much, because currently only questions allow tagging, and answers "inherit" the tags.

I would be in favor of adding an optional markdown for dangerous code to make it stand out from the rest of the page, though.

No, please do not add meta-tags.

A tag would not be able to stand on its own.

Dangerous dangerousness endangers danger... (I agree and am trying to work but failing miserably... sigh). –  ben is uǝq backwards Dec 19 '12 at 15:14

There are already enough possible actions for dangerous/wrong code

  • Downvote
  • Comment
  • Delete
  • Flag

So there is no need for .

Note you can also edit, but this is often discouraged. It is best if the original poster sees the error and corrects it.
