My comments are they it's better to use an commerce engine that gets  
regular security testing and patches. If you roll your own then you  
need to be proactive in monitoring the system for intrusion attempts.

Decent security testing and auditing costs money. If you use an  
existing engine and you get hacked then you have someone to sue if  
they were incompetent.
