Guest Interview: Kimberly Crawley
Kimberly Crawley was involved with computing at a very early age. At age eight, Crawley I managed to edit autoexec.bat on her father's Windows 3.0 machine, after complaining the OS taking too long to boot. She has been on the web since 1993, at age nine. From there, she taught herself web development. Crawley is an information security researcher with InfoSec Institute. She has a special interest in both malware and cyberwarfare.
In her spare time, she loves video games, anime, jazz, and Japanese food. Crawley lives Toronto with her husband Sean Rooney, who used to have his own cyber security firm.

- "Meet Reuben Paul: 8 year old CEO - Nice coverage from HITB.
- "Had a data breach? Well - Breached? If this new law passes, you will have 30 days to notify your customers. Is this a good thing? Bad thing?

- Lizard Squad’s DDoS-For-Hire Service Built on Hacked Home Routers - If you think home routers can't be used for attacks because they are resource deficient: Hackers have boasted on Twitter the site is built on somewhere between 250,000 to 500,000 infected routers and that at one point last week it had purportedly served 900 million requests. And if you thought routers aren't being hacked because they are not exposed to the Internet on the WAN port, think again.
