Re: Developer bad habits?

In the old days you could put all sorts of rubbish on your box safe in the knowledge that it wasn't routable from the Internet.

Nowadays everything is port 80 or 443, even file access (e.g. s3) and microservices mean every little thing has a REST over http endpoint visible from the Internet regardless if the inefficiency that creates.

Putting everything on http is the equivalent of not having a firewall.
