WHID 2009-30: Sage SaaS Withdrawn Due to Security Flaws

While we have no public record of an exploit in this case, it seems that the mare discovery of vulnerabilities in sage new SaaS (software as a service) offering created so much damage to classify it as an incident.

Sage is the leading provider of accounting software in the UK and it was about to launch a trendy small business SaaS offering. However as ZDnet reports, serious security flaws were discovered in the public beta and the company has to call off the launch. Who discovered the issues? naturally the competition. Duane Jackson, the CEO of a tiny rival company reported them on his blog
