I just got through talking about how insecure the internet is when I see this. Please don't blame Yahoo that your email got hacked because your password was fluffy24. (name of my cat and my favorite TV show. They will never figure that out) Take some personal responsibility against the dangers of online anything. The "it will never happen to me" is denial in it's greatest form. It is not some dude in his mother's basement drinking Red Bull's, in his sweats, hacking passwords. Here we go, the most popular passwords of 2014: 1. 123456 (Unchanged from 2013) 2. password (Unchanged) 3. 12345 (Up 17) 4. 12345678 (Down 1) 5. qwerty (Down 1) 6. 1234567890 (Unchanged) 7. 1234 (Up 9) 8. baseball (New) 9. dragon (New) 10. football (New) 11. 1234567 (Down 4) 12. monkey (Up 5) 13. letmein (Up 1) 14. abc123 (Down 9) 15. 111111 (Down 8) 16. mustang (New) 17. access (New) 18. shadow (Unchanged) 19. master (New) 20. michael (New) 21. superman (New) 22. 696969 (New) 23. 123123 (Down 12) 24. batman (New) 25. trustno1 (Down 1) Okay, I can't look at this anymore. I just want to cry. But on the other hand, I can sum it up in 2 words.....job security. Full article
Hi all, One strategy I have with WordPress, revolving around security, is to install myself an analytics plugin (free) called "Slimstat" and a free security plugin once known as "Better WP Security" (I think it's changed names). If you set things up well, you can use slimstat to track the pages people visit and even their IP addresses. If you find some fishy behaviour going on such as constant hitting on potentially vulnerable plugin files (you may not even have these installed) or various hits on your login page, you can simply copy the IP; go back to your better wp security and blacklist the IP. Of course, those two plugins have many more features to explore. Very powerful! On a related note, is anybody using Slimstat? I am actually using it instead of Google Analytics.
