Meet Default RED

Meet Default RED

Consider this article as the launch of Default RED, however, we are not completely new to the industry. Some of you may remember our operations by a former name, Hackberry, which I launched with the vision of creating an open-source community to address the dynamic challenges in cybersecurity. While Hackberry struggled a lot, I am excited to share how Default RED is taking a fresh approach to making a significant impact.

When I started Hackberry back in May 2020, my goal was clear: foster a collaborative environment where hackers, experts and, cybersecurity enthusiasts, could come together to create innovative solutions, tackle vulnerabilities, and defend against cyber threats. However, as much as I believed in the power of community, I failed to build one. Despite the dedication of a few, we struggled with a lack of broader engagement, limited resources, a lack of goals, and other obstacles that prevented us from achieving the level of success we aspired to.

In response to these challenges, I've decided to change a few things. Hackberry as a company, has been renamed to Default RED. The branding now serves as an experimental Operating System. For now, it is under development so I can't tell you much about it. As for Default RED, instead of focusing solely on building a community, we are channeling our efforts into creating cybersecurity products and conducting vulnerability research.

Stay tuned for updates on our latest projects and breakthroughs, and thank you for being a part of this journey.
