Welcome to Krebsonsecurity.com

Welcome, everyone, to krebsonsecurity.com. Here’s to new beginnings, and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Some of you may be familiar with my work at The Washington Post and the Security Fix blog. Krebsonsecurity.com will feature similar content: Original reporting and analysis on important security threats and trends.

With a few exceptions, I will continue to eschew chasing the security story-of-the day, as there are plenty of sites you can go to for that. My focus will remain on publishing information and reporting that you won’t find anywhere else – and with a minimum of editorializing.

Visitors who are unfamiliar with my work can browse through a collection of what I think represents some of my best reporting over the past few years. The About the Author and About this Blog tabs include a bit more detail about who I am and how this blog will be organized.

Finally, this blog will be a whole lot more interesting if folks participate, so if you’ve got something to add or have a strong feeling one way or another on a topic, take a second to leave your comments and voice your opinion. I will be moderating comments, but only for spam and probably only at the outset of this blog launch (unless your post is truly offensive to other readers, exists merely to pimp some product, links to nasty sites, etc). If you want to shoot me a note directly, send it here.

Thanks for visiting, and look for actual reporting and news content here in the next 24 hours or so as I iron out a few remaining kinks in the blog.


  1. Hi Neil, yes, I did, thank you very much. I really appreciate it.

    To answer your question, I responded to your donation with a thank you email just after noon on Monday, to the email address listed in your Paypal account. Please let me know if you did not get that, and I will resend. I did not get any bounce messages.

    I hadn’t heard about the Facebook ecurrency plans, but if it’s true they are about to become a much bigger target than they already are.

    Stay tuned.

  2. Hi Brian –

    I have always followed your Security Fix column in the Post and am pleased that you now have a ‘home of your own’.

    I have a security page on our corporate intranet that I use to try to keep our employees up to date on current events in computer security. Would it be OK to link to individual articles on your blog site?

    Thanks for all your hard work and good luck with this particular endeavor.
