Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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

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.
