Podcast 407: Safety in numbers: crowdsourcing data on nefarious IP addresses

Modern DevOps could learn a few things from industrialized hackers.

We chat with Philippe Humeau, founder and CEO of CrowdSec, which bills itself as an open-source & collaborative IPS (intrusion prevention system). He explains why hackers are always the first to industrialize new DevOps practices and the security scenarios that keep him up at night.

Episode Notes

You can find Philippe on Twitter here and learn more about CrowdSec here.

They recently put together a list of the IP addresses trying to exploit the new Log4j vulnerability.

For a prescient view of today’s cybersecurity challenges, Humeau recommends John Brunner’s classic 1975 sci-fi novel, The Shockwave Rider.
