Not just tester, Be a hacker also

In today complex web envoronment. If you are testing a website or a web product. Don't be a tester only but be a hacker also. Testing alone is not sufficient to say that we are secure. It may be the case that our site is working fine as customer expected. But it should also work as we expected, as client expected. What about a gun if anyone can shot it, but it's yours? If it is yours, only you should have the right to shot it.

Always test for securities of your websites and best way to do it is try to hack your websites by your own.

Is really automation makes testing error free?

There is a general question in interviews " Automation makes testing error free, what you say?".

Most of us answer this question in "Yes", but reality is different. I know one proverb "A fool with a tool is still a fool".

In the same way, automation does not do anything itself. We are the testers who use the automated tools as per our requirements. Please keep things in mind.

1) Not every test case can be automated.
2) Not every time it's good to opt for automation.
3) Automation results also needs manual bug tracking.
4) Creating a automated script may be easy, but editing is difficult with requirement change.

So, when you face this question in future, think about what's said above and answer then.

Enjoy :)
