His stand against malware and other types of attacks has made his blog a frequent target for bad actors. But no matter how many difficulties it has to face, krebsonsecurity.com comes back every time, rising like a phoenix from the ashes.

The Hack Today

The Hack Today
  1. The Hack Today This blog focuses on hacking, as its name suggests. However, it does not only provide its readers with news or interviews on that topic. What you are going to find here instead are detailed explanations of how hacking works. The Hack Today goes in-depth on the topics of hacks of various OS-based systems as well as pen-testing. Reading it can greatly improve your understanding of vulnerabilities that may endanger your network or device. Doing so usually requires a bit of reverse engineering because this website is aimed at more advanced users who are interested in (ethical) hacking and doesn’t spell some things out.
