Featured Story: Two free Java EE filters for CSRF, Reflected XSS, and Adobe XSS

OWASP contributors from Aspect Security have developed two new Java EE filters to protect against common web attacks. Just add a few lines to your web.xml file and enjoy the protection.

CSRF and Reflected XSS Filter for Java EE
This filter adds a random token to forms and URLs that prevent an attacker from executing both CSRF and reflected XSS attacks.
Adobe XSS Filter for Java EE
This filter protects against the recent XSS attacks on PDF files. By using a redirect and an encrypted token, this filter ensures that dangerous attacks are not passed into the Adobe reader plugin.
