Websites and security, big guys always being attacked!

LA Black Hat—coming from black magic—is often used as a reference to programmers hacking systems for no good.ast Thursday, SourceForge.net was attacked again.

You would think that they would be safe from such attacks since SourceForge.net offers a free service for users to offer their free (open source) software online. Yes! That's where you download many of the free tools you are using everyday. For instance, if you have an archaic type of a website, you probably need to FTP your data to your account. On Microsoft Windows,Mac OS/X, and Linux, this can be done with FileZilla. Although they have their own website, the download comes from SourceForge.net.

Security is one of the area where our base CMS system is very strong at and we also ensure that our own Snap! code is secure. This starts with your password, but it includes very much more than just that. This being said, we are not looking for hackers to visit us. Well... it's not like that doesn't happen, but so far so good.
