getting started with Node.js and Typescript

Managing large-scale JavaScript projects can be challenging, as you need to guarantee that the pieces fit together. You can use unit tests, types (which JavaScript does not really have), or the two in combination to solve this issue.

Gathering weak npm credentials

Or how I obtained direct publish access to 13% of npm packages (including popular ones). The estimated number of packages potentially reachable through dependency chains is 52%.

In this post, I speak about three ways of gathering credentials — bruteforce attack, known accounts leaks from other sources (not npm), and npm credentials leaks on GitHub (and other places).
