Spam: Another Milestone?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 17, 2014 in Internet |

Tomorrow I will hit another mark in the fight against spam. Well, not exactly since it is not really a fight, more of a submit and delete. Tomorrow my stats will show that more than eighty-five thousand spam comments have been caught and deleted on this blog. Photo Credit: chrismar – Creative Commons The big […]

Stopping The Spam Flood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 12, 2014 in Internet |

Hardly a day goes by – hardly an hour up until this morning – when my mail box isn’t filled with messages I really do not wish to see. After a while it becomes more than a chore, deleting all the rubbish, seeking out the real messages, blocking the real addresses or websites used by […]

Facing Off The Attack

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 6, 2014 in Internet |

Someone out there is trying to gain access to this blog. They are using a wide variety of different IPs for the attack – I can’t consider it anything else – and using the standard log in name WordPress sets up on new blogs: admin. None of the attempts have been successful, and none will […]

I’m Sorry, But Could You…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2013 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

I comment on other blogs sometimes, not always, but definitely when I think I can add a little to the conversation. That’s one of the things which makes the Internet what it is, on the blogging front at least, conversation, discussion, showing interest. Some people can’t do this, some people just do not have the […]

Numbers

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 3, 2013 in Internet, News & Opinion |

Data. Little pieces of information placed together to gain an insight into a specific something. It might be movements, finances, lives, spying, terrorism, sales, whatever you care to think of. Our lives are controlled by a mass of data which we – and others – gather constantly, whether we wish them, or us, to or […]

Forced Access II

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 24, 2013 in Internet, News & Opinion |

Is someone else trying to test out what I wrote yesterday, to see what happens when they try certain commands from the front end (what you see here) of my site? It certainly looks that way, until you read a little further down through the log and see that not only are the attempts close […]

They’re Here!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 20, 2013 in Internet |

One of the things that I do regularly, being security minded when it comes to what happens with this website, is check and see exactly what is going on where, and how successful that ‘what’ is. I’m sure many have heard that someone in China keeps on hacking into sites, taking them over, disrupting or […]

No Click Updates

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 30, 2013 in Internet, Personal |

The latest version of WordPress has been billed as the ‘No Click’ update: it is designed so that all minor security and maintenance updates are processed automatically, in the background, with no need for a site owner to do anything. This has, of course, raised some ire amongst a few users but, at the same […]

The Welcome Page

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 23, 2013 in Internet |

What is blogging all about? For me it is the passing on of information, news, opinion and general tidbits directly to the reading / surfing public in a form that is easy to handle, easy to find and enjoyable. That, for me, means that the blog part of a web site – when the site […]

More Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2013 in Internet |

The world is a dangerous place, and the Internet – whilst being virtual – is not excluded. Taking a look at my BruteForce statistics today I happened to notice a sudden and sharp increase in the number of attempts to gain access to my blog: something which no one would find too pleasing, especially when […]
