Donald Trump's new cyber advisor Rudy Giuliani has a highly insecure website
A website used to promote the services of Giuliani Security & Safety (GSS), a consultancy firm owned by US President-elect Donald Trump's newly appointed cybersecurity advisor, is being mocked online for – ironically – being openly vulnerable to hackers.
Rudy Giuliani was appointed this week (12 January) and will reportedly now be tasked with chairing meetings between the private sector and government to discuss the main hacking threats they face. A former New York Mayor, Giuliani has spent over a dozen years in the security industry.
Yet all the credentials in the world were deemed moot by a plethora of experts who quickly analysed his corporate website, giulianisecurity.com, and found numerous critical flaws. On Twitter, prominent hacker Dan Tentler pointed to Joomla, the content management system (CMS) used by the website.
