President-elect Donald Trump tapped Rudy Giuliani as his “go to” guy on cybersecurity, but Giuliani’s New York firm could use a little better security of its own, McClatchy Newspapers reports. The website for the former New York mayor’s firm, Giuliani Security, is riddled with vulnerabilities, and tech experts cackled over the irony on social media. “You wouldn’t need to be uber-skilled to hack it,” said Aaron Hill, a web developer at Cornell University.
The Giuliani announcement prompted a few programmers to conduct their own free website analysis of giulianipartners.com. Their verdict? Pathetic. Sad. Some may have tried their hand at a little mischief. “Service temporarily unavailable,” flashed the screen when one visitor sought to browse there Friday. The site was periodically unavailable much of the day. “A 7-year-old could take that site down,” tweeted Paul Gilzow, a programmer and security analyst from Columbia, Mo.
