As of this writing, ExpressionEngine is a solid system without any major security flaws. But, as is the case with any customizable system, with each modification you make, there is the risk of introducing a flaw. In essence, EE’s greatest feature, its extensibility, is also its greatest flaw.
Generally, there are two areas to focus on when examining an ExpressionEngine install for weak points. They are the filesystem and the database. The filesystem, holds all your hard work, template modifications, custom add-ons and sensitive configuration files, while the database holds your client’s hard work. If there are two areas to look at protecting, it’s these two.
