Test everything, trust no one.

Do not trust any security related answers you see on StackOverflow.com (SO) / Security.StackExchange.com (SE). Not from me, not from anyone. There are very smart people on SO/SE and there are excellent answers given, although the right answer is not always chosen.

I have been writing exploit code for a while. There is no perfect system, vulnerable code will always exist.

@Hoax that is a separate question. The OAuth flow is really useful.

@ThePhysicist and the answer was clearly provided. In order to restrict access, you need something you control.

@ThePhysicist ok, you still can't give the attacker the access_token, which means you can't send it to the desktop client, this must never happen. Crypto isn't magic, you can't hide in plain sight.

This is a security issue, and for any reasonably complex app there should be no less than 1,000 vulnerabilities that are more important than this one.

This is an easy finding that is commonly reported by Burp Scanner. If a pentester is reporting this issue, then they have weak findings and are scrambling to get a report together.

SSL should not be used by anyone, TLS 1.0 and later should be deployed by all services.

comment How to make database of IP addresses anonymous?
@Pacerier An IP Address filter alone is almost never a good idea, ideally there would be some other access control system.

comment SAML Without Session
This question needs more information. I think what you are suggesting is horribly insecure and should not be done. The client cannot be trusted.
