The complexity of modern software in connection with low awareness of security issues among developers, often turns out to be a deadly combination. This applies to both desktop and web applications. The desktop programs, despite they often have web counterparts, are still popular and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. History of finding and exploiting their vulnerabilities is long, just like the list of security mechanisms used to protect them. The topic of desktop applications security is constantly evolving, and in the case of web browsers also touches the issue of security of Web solutions. For example when websites are attacked and infected in order to place malicious code inside visitors’ browsers and execute it. A look at the most common attacks on desktop applications and used countermeasures gives an outlook on the most important issues of current situation of software security.
