This is a test

This is a test

Welcome to my new blog

Creating a personal blog is still a thing right? Well here it is!

This blog is hosted on Ghost platform.

Why you may ask?

Because I want to make a difference NO!

After my experiencies on vulnerability testing on all kinds of information systems, probably the vast majority of today's blogs is using Wordpress. While Wordpress is an amazing platform with a huge active community and following, is also plagued by the countless of plugins for anything you can imagine. Each of those plugins at some point on their life cycle, experience some sort of vulnerability. When it is announced on the public devs take immediate measures to fix it and send the update to all of its users. Users update their systems and everything is back to normal. So far so good but, what happens when you forget to update your systems to the latest update? Probably some kind of bot will ping your site, check the vulnerability and report back to its bot master. Then who knows what evil purpose is in the mind of the attacker.

Wordpress while having it's huge following, also has a huge community of pentesters with all sorts of automated pentest tools you can imagine (can you?) ready to check if any of your precious plugins does not obey to it's updates. I think you get the idea.

Ghost on the other side is a minimalistic and simplistic blog platform still short of plugins.

What am I going to write about?

Mostly technical stuff but also comments on new disrpupting technologies and who knows what else!

Stay tuned!
