Think like a hacker, write secure code!

Each program as a target for a security pen tester can be viewed as a new experience. But beyond the special characteristics of each target, I always see the big mistake that causes most of the vulnerabilities discovered:
"The programmers do not think as a hacker". Unfortunately most of the programmers write the code in a way that is suitable for a utopia. In such utopia, no one wants to bypass the guards, everyone is honest and respects the rules...
Perhaps the most important role of a programmer in the security program is to learn the art of thinking like a hacker.
