By reading this book, you will learn about the most important security issues facing a Drupal 6 website. This field doesn't drastically differ much from one version of Drupal to the next, and I've taken time to provide extra detail around some of the changes that came from Drupal 5 and are likely to be included in Drupal 7 (Drupal 7 is about halfway down the path to being released as the book goes to print).
In particular, the book discusses how to avoid the most common vulnerabilities in Drupal. The specific classes of vulnerabilities are based on the most common problems reported in announcements from the Drupal security team and my personal experience with code and configuration issues witnessed over nearly four years of involvement with the project.
