Updated Errata for Writing Secure Code 2nd Edition


Last week, Michael Howard posted the errata for Writing Secure Code, Second Edition. I was the technical editor on that book and one that caught my eye was was the first one listed:

Entire Book
Please replace all references to Windows® .NET Server with Windows® Server 2003.

Microsoft had decided to finalize the Windows Server name as Windows .NET Server, just a couple of days before we were shipping to the printer. So I changed every reference in the book from Windows 2003 Server to Windows .NET Server. It took me a long time and I was very proud of the work I did to make that change. I think they changed the name to Windows Server 2003 a couple of weeks after I got my first copy of the book back from the printer. Doh!

In any case, this is literally the best book you can buy on writing secure applications on any platform. I keep it on my desk and I use it all the time.
