Research Team is working to make this place better and safer
Once upon a time, an old man walked down a Spanish beach at dawn, he saw ahead of him what he thought to be a dancer. The young man was running across the sand, rhythmically bending down to pick up a stranded starfish and throw it far into the sea.
The old man gazed in wonder as the young soul again and again threw the small starfish from the sand into the water. The old man approached him and asked why he spent so much energy doing what seemed a waste of time. The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left until the morning sun. “But there are thousands of miles of beach, and miles and miles of starfish. How can your effort make any difference?” The young man looked down at the small starfish in his hand, and as he threw it to safety in the sea, said, “It makes a difference to this one!”
Our research team is doing same work in ocean of websites. Their efforts are definitely making a difference to one.
Web security is as much essential as web development these days but many web based applications are not taking it seriously. You are not mugged till now it doesn’t mean robbers do not exist. Our security research and analysis team picks random servers from internet and find the vulnerabilities. They act like an ethical hacker and inform them about vulnerabilities.
One of the vulnerability we found in the site asapp.com. asapp is Built by a team of leading scientists, software engineers and designers. We reported them and got reply from their young and dynamic founder and advisor Marcus Westin. First he did not believe but when we showed him proof, he was surprised. He wanted to know how it was possible for us to hack into their system. Our security researchers not only showed him the steps, they also suggested their team to fix the vulnerability.
Another incident was with the site mypokert.com. It is a site to play poker online. When we sent an email about their vulnerable site, they did not believe but two months later we got an email from site owner Kirill about their site is hacked and it was exact same way what we mentioned in mail. But now it was too late. Their data could not be recovered. Hacker dropped the all the databases.
When they asked our help, we provided solutions to make their site more secure and robust on security front.
