Great recommendations here... WordPress' autoupdate feature alone is a great first step toward securing your site.
“Prevention is always better than cure” How true are these words for a WordPress website! Every day you would hear a new story about a WordPress website being hacked which is sure to shake you up if you own one yourself. The best way to combat this fear is by ensuring that your website is secure through proper measures. Here are a few preventive ways that would ensure your WordPress website doesn’t fall prey to any malicious activities! #wordpress

I still think there's a market for a hardened version of Windows... DataGuard and CredentialGuard in WIndows 10 enterprise edition are interesting uses of hypervisor technology to help mitigate its flaws but it seems like something written from scratch or built on ReactOS or WINE needs to be deployed but to what end? #security #infosec

We used to call these "script kiddie" tools but they are increasingly much more complex and have more coordinated goals than the simple kits of the past. It takes a little bit of working through Python dependencies to get it up and running. Q.v. the Social Engineer Toolkit (SET). #infosec #security #cybersecurity #cybercrime

Now that Anniversary Edition is out, I'm finding myself lost in the weeds when it comes to reading Patch Tuesday bulletins from Microsoft. If you're as boggled as I, this may come in handy. #windows #infoesec #security

Tired of zero day samples evading your analysis tools? Check out Binary Guard's service -- I just got my beta account for the free version of their service. #infosec #security #malware #cybersecurity

"Related to encryption, I noticed an undocumented feature while playing around with diskutil (which prompts you for interactive confirmation of the destructive power of APFS unless this is added to the command-line: -IHaveBeenWarnedThatAPFSIsPreReleaseAndThatIMayLoseData; I’m not making this up). APFS (apparently) supports constant time cryptographic file system erase, called 'effaceable' in the diskutil output. This presumably builds a secret key that cannot be extracted from APFS and encrypts the file system with it. A secure erase then need only delete the key rather than needing to scramble and re-scramble the full disk to ensure total eradication. Various iOS docs refer to this capability requiring some specialized hardware; it will be interesting to see what the option means on macOS. Either way, let’s not mention this to the FBI or NSA, agreed?"

thanks to the Windows Subsystem for Linux you can now write simple fork bombs in bash to tank Windows 10. :)
