I hope you are talking about server-side JavaScript solutions, because
giving client-side JavaScript direct-access to your database sounds even
worse :) Oktober was dubbed leaktober by an online IT magazine here in NL:
every business day (and sometimes in the weekend) they exposed at least one
(gaping) security hole in websites of companies, government etc. Most of
these were basic SQL injection attacks; lets make sure we reduce the
potential of that type of attacks, not increase the chance :)

Are the slides (or video) available somewhere?
