WordPress Plugin Advent Calendar

During my time at RIPS Tech I had the pleasure of setting up the so called “WordPress Plugin Advent Calendar”. In Germany, like in a lot of countries, it is a tradition to give kids a treat every day from the first of December until Christmas eve. At RIPS, we wanted to implement this tradition for the InfoSec people. Each day we either released a vulnerability in a plugin or a core WordPress bug. Many of the plugins featured had millions of active installations and were composed of bugs in eCommerce, forums, Caching etc. Take a look here: RIPS Advent Calendar 2018.

I wrote the Calendar and found a big portion of the vulnerabilities. I received huge amounts of support and help by Dennis Brinkrolf and Karim Elouerghemmi, who were two amazing collegues!
