Hacking WordPress

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 15, 2015 in Internet |

One of the big discussion themes at the moment – an ongoing theme, to be honest – is hacking and, in particular, the many attempts to hack into WordPress sites. It has been mentioned often, along with a whole series of resolutions to make a site safer, but still seems to be a theme simply […]

A Question Of Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 9, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Ever wondered how easy it is to get money transferred from a credit card account to a bank account in Germany? I mean, the type of account which does not have a physical credit card, but where you have to request a transfer from your credit account to your bank account. It is not as […]

Testing Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2015 in Internet |

Security on the Internet, as we all should know, is of the utmost importance. No one wants to lose all their hard work, their posts, images, their public face to someone else. So I am more than pleased to see that someone from Pervouralsk in the Russian Federation (IP 31.28.97.238 under the host 238.97.28.31.interra.ru) has […]

The People Behind Real Content Management

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 25, 2014 in Internet |

In the beginning I believed that people combed through the content of Social Media web sites looking for those images and messages which should never have seen the light of day. I thought that there was an office somewhere that, filled with cubicles, had hundreds of people working to ensure that social networks remained clean, […]

Twitter Links: Hitting Rock Bottom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

For some sites, security is of the utmost importance, and that is a good thing. As we read, almost every single week of the year, about another breach, about more phishing, about millions of e-mail addresses, social security numbers, names and address, bank account details being stolen from their supposedly secure repositories on a server […]

Another Password Hackathon

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2014 in Internet |

It seems as if hardly a week goes by without another report of a website being hacked, of passwords, credit card details, social security numbers, selfies, everything personal becoming available to the masses thanks to the unscrupulous. The latest to be hit is that Internet giant of security, who tend to keep their own security […]

WordPress Security: Nice Try Spammer

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 11, 2014 in Internet |

Whilst the number of spam comments has drastically dropped thanks to my WordPress settings and Akismet, there are still one or two which come through and hit the approval queue – in the spam folder – just in case.

Attack Of The Bots

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2014 in Internet |

I’ve been wondering why the admin side of this web site has been a little slow of late, and why, now and then, a humanity check appears when I sign in. Now, thanks to an update on the BruteProtect site, I have the answer. BruteProtect is a WordPress plug-in I use to protect myself from […]

WordPress And Heartbleed

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 7, 2014 in Internet |

I can’t imagine that there is anyone on the Internet today, and especially those who have a web site, who has not heard about Heartbleed. What doesn’t seem to be quite so clear is which companies, operating servers, have implemented changes to prevent data lose or the theft of data by those taking advantage of […]

Protect Yourself!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 23, 2014 in Internet |

Another two examples, from this blog, of why everyone who uses the Internet should protect their work. In the first example I show how many multiple clicks per second have resulted in someone being blocked or throttled (their access slowed down) recently. This is where a bot or a human has repeatedly clicked on a […]
