This week, we find ourselves understanding the #Cryptonite that can weaken devs and software creators when dealing with #cryptographic #algorithms and #passwords. Lack of proper crypto controls and hardcoded passwords can quickly turn your app into crap.

We go through some gotchas from the excellent book "24 Deadly Sins of Software Security". Anyone doing a threat analysis, or code audit needs to check for these things to ensure you don't end up in the news with a hardcoded password in your home router firmware, like these guys: https://securityledger.com/2015/08/hardcoded-firmware-password-sinks-home-routers/
