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.

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.

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).

Rails Authentication for Compliance
5 projects | dev.to | 28 Oct 2023
The first line of defense should be to put rate-limiting on your login endpoints. rack-attack can help with that. I recommend to limit the login attempts to 5 per minute for a username and block the IP for 30 minutes. You should also limit the number of login attempts from the same IP address, but this needs to be adjusted to the application you are working on, because if it is a tool used in classrooms, it might be legit to have 50 logins within a few minutes from the same IP. (I have a few post written about rack-attack)

What is happening once you launch and open a Rails app to the real, wild web

It's entirely normal and expected. If your site gets any traction, volume and sophistication of probing will only increase. I recommend starting by setting up Rack Attack (https://github.com/rack/rack-attack), that will help you block the bad actors for awhile, if the volume gets high enough you'll want to start blocking traffic upstream in reverse proxy or load balancing layer, depending on architecture.
