However good or bad you think you are at security, this may put a few details into perspective for you:
In the last few weeks Ligatt Security has been “making headlines” with their 90′s-esque hackers-style commercials and advertisements – the three most notable of which advertise that large black men, 12 year old boys, and “hackers” with what appear to be ethernet-enabled projectorgoggles are “out to get you”. Their fear-based marketing campaign slants the average computer users security experience using the standard “if you don’t hire us, your life is pretty much over” routine.
It’s a pretty huge bag of fail – I really hope this is a learning experience for them. One of the more important ‘scout badges’ I’ve earned in my time as a contractor so far is “practice what you preach”. A “large”, publicly traded “information security company” probably should have taken the time to do some BASIC SECURITY on their own website – CLICKY!
EDIT: After a couple of twitter posts about this they’ve firewalled me off of the host. Firewalling one guy isn’t gonna help guys, I’m certain I’m not the only person to have found a CORNUCOPIA of publicly available vulnerabilities on your site.
