    Disabling right-click doesn't really work. People can get around it. When dealing with any SQL database you need to make sure you protect yourself from SQL-injection, which can be used to takeover your site, modify your site, or delete your database.

    I don't know what you mean by saying you're using "written procedures" as a security. You'll need to explain your setup for us to tell you what security precautions you need to take to protect your data. Just saying you're using VBScript and SQL Server is just too broad.

    Also, FYI, there's no such word as "datas." Data is the plural form of datum.

    proxy servers work well. i run my server through a proxy then through the net. the "hackers" cant modify my server settings unless they know how to get past my proxy. its basically like a fake IP in a way except its run through 2 bases gives more roads for the person to go through which im sure they wont like it

    When you program think about what you can do to make it more secure. With more security that means more code and more checks. Things like XSS and SQL injections are what you need to watch out for. If you are using sensitive data like credit cards, I wouldn't recommend being responsible for that. For passwords encrypt using sha1()

    Your question is too broad to be answered in a way you want.
