Introducing: Site Crunch -- Optimize Your Site

Introducing... Site Crunch!

Site Crunch is a script which will recursively walk through a directory structure and do its best to compress or otherwise "minify" the files it finds. It is designed to help optimize web sites, so it works against JPG and PNG images, as well as CSS, JavaScript and HTML files. My limited testing shows sites can often quite easily shed 10% of their bulk--not an insignificant amount!

More details and downloads can be found here: http://cirt.net/SiteCrunch.

dave

dave flew solo on the Nikto project for nearly two years and now denies that he co-runs it with Sullo, though he adds stuff when interesting things happen and his development server doesn't blow up (it's amazing how many times that happens).

dave has been in the security industry for too long. Originally hacking games, then a developer, then sysadmin, then generic dogsbody and finally penetration tester.

Chris Sullo

Chris started CIRT.net in the "futuristic" year 2000 as a place to house the default password and port databases. In 2001, he wrote and released Nikto, which quickly became one of the most popular open source web security tools.

Firefox Search of Default Password List

Michel Chamberland has released a search add-on for Firefox that allows you to directly search the default password database directly. It's pretty straight-forward, but I like things that save time... and this does.

Just a quick note that I've decided this whole "blog" thing isn't just a fad, so I've started writing over at the work blog since, well, they pay me. So go subscribe.
