How safe are Git Repos

Another conversation about safety got me thinking about sources stored in remote host site, like Bitbucket.

I have some PHP sources stored in repos that update my date bases with application use statistics.
As the PHP add records to the mySQL DB it necessary to have my userid stuff in the source.

Just how safe are private sources? Any thought?

You definitely don’t want to put access credentials out in the cloud. There have been multiple instances of security failures in various services that have allowed passwords into the wild.

I’d keep the important stuff somewhere else. I think I’ve read an article or two that discuss various options for this. You might want to google a bit and see what other opinions you can find.


Have removed then.

If you need a company secure Git… You can use Maverick’s Xcode server to do that. It works very nice.

We all get so accustomed to the cloud that we forget the good old methods : save all your precious data onto a removable disk, place your passwords into an encrypted document on that drive, and put the disk into a safe deposit box at the bank. Bank robbers are a lot less frequent than hackers. And most of them could not care less about data :wink:

Thanks Michel.

I see you changed your picture, are you really that ugly? :slight_smile:

Does being unpleasant make you feel more complete ? Discussing avatars is just as impolite as making comments on clothing :confused:

No! In my working days I did comment men and women on their clothing. Of course that when you could tell the difference.

Michael wasn’t so luck like me, with my beautiful nose, enchanting eyes and perfect red hair. As for web and security, I feel very insecure these days. Few days ago I’ve signed a service that started to send me newsletters. In MANY links in the contents, believe me, I could find things like this What!? Changed my password to something even more weird and canceled the service. :frowning:

Michel, your new picture reminds me of Pink Floyd.

No offense, but To be honest, I liked your old picture more.

Thank you for you compliments about my old self, but today I feel like using that avatar. Tomorrow I may use another one. I may dress differently too. I may buy a car of a different color. I may even let my hair grow :wink:

It is said that religion and politics should be avoided at dinner. So should be frontal aggression about personal taste. It never leads to anything else than undue hostility. One attacks another about appearance, other takes exception and replies with an attack, and it ends up in general frustration. Haven’t we had enough quarrel yesterday ? Peace, please.

Peace be with you too.
