Very interesting article about the “Hack Yourself First” paradigm.
Whether we like it or not, whether we want them to or not, whether it’s legal or not, there are some unsavory people out there who will try to hack into our website(s). History and headlines prove that no business, school, government, or personal blog is off limits and out of harms way. And since the vast majority of websites are riddled with exploitable vulnerabilities, the odds of a bad guy finding a way to break in is in their favor — increasingly so with each passing day. Therefore, it only makes sense to Hack Yourself First. Learn what the bad guys know about the security of your website, or will eventually.
