Laurent on mod_plsql

I saw a post by Laurent over a week ago with a simple example of how to use mod_plsql and the Apache web server. Laurent's post is titled "mod_plsql". This is fantastic technology, I run a website and install and configure software. I write software in many languages when i get any chance to do so, I appreciate how easy it is to create a web based application with Oracle. This is so easy that its scary, the problem for me is the security risks. If you can expose a database to a network and create nice browser based applications this easily there have to be risks. Take a look at laurents post, its interesting reading. Look for the obvious security problem.
