Q Are there security issues associated with including forms on my website?
A Yes and no. The forms themselves are not a security risk, but the scripts that
process the form input can expose your site to security problems. Using scripts that
you can download and use on your own site can be particularly risky, because
malicious people will already know how to exploit any of their bugs. If you are
going to use publicly available scripts, make sure they are approved by your host-
ing provider and that you are using the latest release.
