> After several month spent in research on Web2.0 Insecurities I've

>     For some Web2.0 symbolizes the start of a new era of the Web, for
> others it is merely a marketing buzzword designed to hook unaware
> venture capitalists on the Web2.0 hype.
> The term Web2.0 appeared for the first time in 2003 at a conference
> organized by O'Reilly media. The event, simply titled "Web 2.0?,
> attempted to reference the second generation of web technologies such
> as social communities, server oriented architectures, Wikis, blogs,
> collaborative environments, AJAX, etc. Since then the term has become
> widely adopted across the entire Web industry and it has been used
> ever since to describe innovation.
> In simple words, Web2.0 outlines the technological, philosophical and
> social superset of what we used to know as just the Web. Although we
> know that the Web is not bound to any version number, it makes our
> lives a lot easier to do so, so we can refer to a particular set of
> features. The features of the Web2.0 era are rather blurred due to the
> enormous amount of different opinions on the matter but we all agree
> that they must include things such as feeds, data aggregators,
> collaborative environments, social networks, client-side technologies
> and SOA (Server Oriented Architecture).
> Although Web2.0 has improved our ability to freely communicate and
> share via the means of the Net, it has brought some unimaginable
> dangers and as a result it is insecure. Web2.0 security is very much a
> collection of every single security aspects of its components. On
> their own they are just simple system abnormalities, but when put
> together they create a problem worth our attention.
> In this paper we are going to outline some of the dangers of Web2.0 by
> combining fictional stories with technology that is real. Each story
> begins with a prologue, which introduces the problem, and finishes
> with a conclusion, which summarizes the attack techniques that are
> described within the story context.
> Cheers
