• Think like a hacker – the GC version

    Girl Cynic weighs in her opinions on what it means to ‘think like a hacker’ and it isn’t pretty.

  • CRASS – Vulnerability Disclosure

    After a very slow 2014, Cynical Rants About Security Stuff – or CRASS for short (unfortunate and unintentional) is my attempt at being more regular¬†in publishing content. The idea is that once a week I’ll ramble for a couple of minutes on any given topic.

    This week I rant about the vulnerability disclosure process and how Google and Microsoft arguing publicly doesn’t really help anyone. There are some football (soccer) references that I’m sure all my US-based friends will totally understand.

    I won’t write up all my thoughts on the topic as I’ll be covering ground that many have already written about. If you’re interested in finding out more, or exploring other opinions on the subject, then I recommend checking out the following
