Modern technology hasn't changed made hacking any easier

The greatest hacking event in world history remains the decoding of Enigma and Lorenz messages during World War II. The efforts changed history. The two leaders involved were Turing and Flowers (read about them here). It is often stated (refer here) that compared to the hardware used by the World War II hackers,
a modern Pentium PC programmed to do the same decoding task took twice as long to break the code
The reasons are that a custom hardware device designed to complete a custom task will always trump software. But the hack wasn't only about the ingenious hardware devised by Turing and separately by Flowers. It was more than that.

easywall - Web interface for easy use of the IPTables firewall on Linux systems written in Python3.

Firewalls are becoming increasingly important in today’s world. Hackers and automated scripts are constantly trying to invade your system and use it for Bitcoin mining, botnets or other things. To prevent these attacks, you can use a firewall on your system. IPTables is the strongest firewall in Linux because it can filter packets in the kernel before they reach the application. Using IPTables is not very easy for Linux beginners. We have created easywall - the simple IPTables web interface . The focus of the software is on easy installation and use.
