why do a million administrators have to lock down applications when the developer could have written the application better to begin with.
Because security is best done in depth; ie multiple layers so that if one fails you hopefully prevent problems by another layer.
I am not saying that applications should not be well coded, but we need to be realistic and realise that all programs have bugs.
