The Heartbleed Vulnerability - List of Mainstream Websites Affected
In addition to the sites listed, there are thousands of lesser-known websites that used OpenSSL at their encryption method, so go through your own personal Internet usage and check with the sites that you have accounts for. If you have an account that stored any of your personal data like credit cards or banking information, be sure that the site has patched the vulnerability (if applicable) and THEN change your password to secure your access.

Get Simple p01-contact Form Instructions

If you use Get Simple for your website CMS, here is a summary overview with examples on how to configure p01-contact to display whatever you want as a form.

1. Basic Contact form
    for a basic contact form, just put (% contact %) on the page, and configure your default email, etc., by clicking on the p01-contact button under Plug-ins.

2. Information form (with Inspection Request example)
    Required fields are designated with a !, and you can use captcha! to make sure you have a real user not a bot submitting on your site.


(% contact: text! “Name:”, text! “Daytime Phone:”, text! “EveningPhone:”,  email!, text! “Date/Time Requested:”, text! “Property Address”, text! “City:”, text! “Currently Occupied?”, text! “Utilities On?”, textarea “Comments:”, captcha! “\n\nPlease enter code:” %)

3. Text Me Now

    To have users send a message directly to your cell phone, you need to first figure out your cell phone’s email address (generally it is your cell phone number @ provider domain), then place that email address in the form. Be sure to include a captcha to cut down on spam texts.

(% contact : address@domain.ext %)
(% contact : address@domain.ext, another@domain.ext, ... %)

Additional Info: Field options:

The field options are defined after the field type, to customize it.

  • ! : an exclamation mark define the field as required. A required field left empty will display a “This field is required” error.
  • " : some text between quotes define a custom field label.
  • = : some text after an equality symbol add a pre-filled value. For password field it define the required value.
  • => : some text after an arrow symbol define a locked value.

         subject => "About this script",
         email!,
         textarea "How old is born Napoléon?",
         phone,
         radio "Do you like this script?" = "Yes" selected | "No", 
         website,
         select = "One" selected | "Two" | "Three" | "Four" | "Five" ,
         message! = "Say something",
         password = tomato,  
         captcha, 
         askcopy %)

Malware attack hits thousands of Yahoo users
(CNN) — A malware attack hit Yahoo’s advertising server over the last few days, affecting thousands of users in various countries, an Internet security firm said.
In a blog post, Fox-IT said Yahoo’s servers were releasing an “exploit kit” that exploited vulnerabilities in Java and installed malware.
"Clients visiting yahoo.com received advertisements served by ads.yahoo.com," the internet security firm said. "Some of the advertisements are malicious."
It estimates tens of thousands of users were affected per hour.
"Given a typical infection rate of 9%, this would result in around 27,000 infections every hour," the company said. "Based on the same sample, the countries most affected by the exploit kit are Romania, Great Britain and France. At this time it’s unclear why those countries are most affected, it is likely due to the configuration of the malicious advertisements on Yahoo."
Its investigation revealed that the earliest sign of infection was on December 30.
