Search by Content Type in Drupal 8 - a custom module tutorial

Note: this code has been tested in Drupal 8.0 and 8.1

At the time of this writing, the Search API module is still in alpha phase. A note from the module maintainers warn that it is unstable. This blog post serves as a way to learn how to write a simple Drupal 8 module to modify Drupal 8's core search without using the Search API module.

Anatomy of a Drupalgeddon attack

Before working at Metal Toad, I saw an email from Acquia. A strange email.

It went something like this: 

On October 15th, we will be addressing a security concern at 9:00 am.

Hmm. That's interesting. I don't remember getting an email about security updates like this. As with any CMS, there are constant security updates as new (and sometimes exotic) vulnerabilities are found.
