Hacking WordPress Website with Just a Single Comment

Given the millions of sites this vulnerability potentially affects, it certainly warrants review and investigation.  Here is to hoping WordPress provides a timely patch.  In the interim, it is certainly wise to monitor and control the comment posts to any sites you manage running these versions of the CMS.


Security researcher barred from United Airlines flight after hack tweet

Let me begin by saying that Chris Roberts made a couple of bad, though humorous choices when he decided to tweet in jest about compromising on-board systems on an airplane.  That said, the threats he has detailed in his various public and private sessions are legitimate and should be addressed with great haste and vigor.  I believe United is largely overreacting to his comments and overstating the capabilities of their in-flight security controls.  This is certainly an intriguing conversation to follow in the coming weeks and months.
