Davide Serra: "Never Marry an American Woman"


LONDON — “Never, ever marry an American woman. That’s the advice I give my friends.”

It may seem an odd way to start an interview, especially one with a female American reporter who is married, but Davide Serra, an Italian hedge fund manager based here in London, is not one to opine gently, or particularly carefully.

Russian Space Shuttle

Just yesterday, June 2, 2015, was 60 years old cradle of world space and the largest domestic space harbor - Baikonur Cosmodrome. Over the years, its territory has been tested many different spacecraft, the apex of which was the system of "Energy-Buran". But history has chosen its path and the project died in infancy. More than two decades ago, the last time to close heavy sliding doors MKS - installation and filling of the complex, cut off from the alluring star sky two orbiting spacecraft. There is an easy irony that the birthplace of those who had to surf the cosmic expanses, it was the burial place and a crypt.

Malware and trojans return after cleaning Wordpress site!

While remediating an appliance distributor's (who shall remain nameless) websites from the SoakSoak exploit, the site owner complained about malware "coming back" after being cleaned over-and-over by the former service provider. I logged into their InMotion Hosting control panel where I was greeted with a warning that there was a potential man-in-the-middle attack due to an expired certificate! Then I got another warning that their version of MySQL was obsolete and needed to be upgraded. Digging deeper, I found a variety of user accounts in both the application and the database that had the signature of a hacker - not totally random, but cryptic and/or occasionally named to sound official, like "system account" and such. I'm not sure how InMotion Hosting's certificates were invalid, but once I saw warnings about the host themselves and the back-door, system-wide user accounts I figured it was time to get the hell out of there.
