Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Hackers Tools: Must-Have Tools for Every Ethical Hacker
2 projects | dev.to | 29 May 2023
Metasploit Framework (mentioned earlier)
I watched a video of Mr. Robot programming a script. As I watch the script, the syntax is reminiscent of the Ruby language, and it really is.

It's using the metasploit framework https://github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework
The 36 tools that SaaS can use to keep their product and data safe from criminal hackers (manual research)

Why are there so many Rails related posts here?
6 projects | /r/ruby | 7 May 2023
This is something that kind of annoys me; there's even a /r/rails sub-reddit specifically for Ruby on Rails stuff. Understandably Rails helped put Ruby on the map. Before Rails, Ruby was just another fringe language. Rails became massively popular, helped many startups quickly build their Web 2.0 sites, and become successful companies (ex: GitHub, LinkedIn, AirBnB, etc). Like others have said, "Rails is where the money is at". However, this posses a problem for the Ruby community: whenever Rails becomes less popular, so does Ruby. I wish the Ruby ecosystem wasn't so heavily centralized around Rails, and that we diversified our uses of Ruby a bit. There's of course Sinatra, dry-rb, Hanami, Dragon Ruby, SciRuby, and a dozen security tools written in Ruby such as Metasploit, BeFF, Arachni, and Ronin.

[P] Machine Learning Threat Detection in k8s
2 projects | /r/MachineLearning | 24 Jan 2023
Well, what is considered "real" data here? Why couldn't you simply set up a managed k8s cluster with some prometheus monitoring and run the microservices-demo on it. There is even a synthetic load generator. You could purposefully add in specific kinds of faults into the working system, ones that are supported in metasploit so you can automate intrusions. Consider some goals for gaining access like: exfiltration, denial of service, ransomware. Then consider how you might detect such attacks purely from what you can read out of the prometheus time series data (eg. high egress traffic plus high req/s to redis might mean an exfiltration).

What’s Ruby used for most nowadays?
9 projects | /r/ruby | 30 Oct 2022
Ruby is mainly used in web app development because that's what makes money. However, Ruby is also used in Information Security (infosec) and there are a dozen or so Ruby security tools and libraries (metasploit, ronin, arachni, dnscat2, dradis). There's also SciRuby which aims to allow Ruby being used in the scientific/academic fields. You've probably heard/seen DragonRuby which is helping to popularize Ruby for simple game development. There's also a lot of interesting work happening around mruby and mruby-c (see mruby/c on Flipper Zero and mruby on DreamCast).
Implement DevSecOps to Secure your CI/CD pipeline
54 projects | dev.to | 27 Sep 2022
Pen testing is a proactive cybersecurity practice where security experts target individual components or whole applications to find vulnerabilities that can be exploited to compromise the application and data. ZAP, Metasploit, and Burp Suite can be used for doing pen tests and it can discover vulnerabilities that might be missed by SAST and DAST tools. The downside of a pen test is that it takes more time depending on the coverage and configuration. The proper pen test might take up to several weeks, and with DevOps development speed, it becomes unsustainable. However, it's still worth adding Internal VAPT which can be done on every feature release to move fast and external VAPT can be done biannually or annually to keep overall security in check.
