I recently had the misfortune of suffering a series of Malware/Trojan virus attacks on this and some other Wordpress blogs we operate. I had been planning on taking measures to protect our Wordpress applications from potential attacks but like many other things, procrastination took first priority. The attacks are behind us now. And while the attacks ended up being completely unrelated to any Wordpress vulnerabilities, I thought it would be beneficial to list some measures that can be put in place to help prevent “attacks” on Wordpress driven blogs.
When I read this morning that Twitter plans to index content in the near future, much like a search engine does, my head began to buzz with ideas on why businesses both large and small should take note of this. In fact, it is going to become increasingly important for business owners everywhere to make sure they not only have representation on Twitter but that they are deeply involved as well.
