Website security is a big deal. In the past few years a myriad of major companies’ websites, servers, point-of-sale systems, and who know what else have gotten hacked left and right by groups of highly skilled individuals. Even the Italian company Team Hacking which specialized in “offensive intrusion and surveillance capabilities to governments, law enforcement agencies and corporations,” as described by Wikipedia, was recently hacked making it a concern of gigantic proportions to pretty much everyone.
The good news is that most websites out there, including ours, aren’t being targeted by these individuals. The bad news is that there is another group of hackers eager and happy to target the rest of the websites like this 15-year-old who purportedly hacked 259 company websites within a 90-day period. You read that right, a hacker of 15 years of age having fun like there was no tomorrow.
