Web security – basic resources
Over the past few days I've learnt much more about web security that I'd normally care to. Here are some resources not just for "web-masters" but for ordinary folk doing ordinary things.
a) Security for Gmail accounts: I'd encourage you to sign up to updates from google about their gmail service. I'd also suggest that you take up the new system of two step sign in that works only with your mobile phone. I think this is a great improvement in security (there are alternatives in case the phone is not with you, or not operational for some reason).
b) Google online security blog: This is a nice place to get some useful tips, not just related to google but also other problems, and issues relating to wordpress, etc.
c) For webmasters like me
These resources are only the tip of the iceberg, but we have no choice but to stay one step ahead of the evil malicious people whose prime goal in life is to destroy other people's work and time. The good has no choice but to learn the ways of the evil, so as to defend against evil.
You and I have no choice but to learn far more about web security than we'd like to.
Please add useful links through your comments. Let's prepare to wage war against these sub-humans who masquerade as humans.
