Jesus Villa is a security engineer with a passion for what he does. He creates tutorials showing how simple it is for someone to exploit weaknesses in a website, and then shows you how to secure it!
In this tutorial, he focuses on something called a dictionary attack, which is essentially where people hack your password by entering systematically trying every word in a dictionary.
Jesus has an entire series on Web Security with Python for free on CodeCast, so it's definitely worth checking out if this is something you're interested in!
