WordPress websites are battling with a new threat involving a Russian cybercrime network, which is stealing login credentials for U.S. and European banks. Using a botnet, the cybercriminals have already obtained information from 800,000 online-banking transactions. More than 50 percent of these are reported to be from five of the largest banks in the U.S.
The illicit activities of the cybercrime network were discovered by Proofpoint, Inc., a Sunnyvale, California-based security company. It has released information on how cybercriminals get around security measures.Read More »WordPress Websites Targeted by Russian Cybercrime Network
It’s no secret we love WordPress, and every time something significant comes up, we can’t wait to test it out. Yesterday, WordPress.org announced that WordPress 4.0 Beta 1 is out.
Of course, it comes with the usual warning that it is still in development – that’s why it’s a Beta – and that it is not recommended that you run it on a live site. Still, that doesn’t mean you cannot play with it!Read More »WordPress 4.0 Beta 1 Is Out; Want to Try It Out?
New versions of mobile operating systems always excites users for a variety of reasons, not the least of which are the improvements that are supposed to come with them. On the other hand, app developers have the issue of needing to consider the different versions when creating their apps.
Needless to say, in the case of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) was a major update that was welcomed by practically everyone.

Yesterday saw the much awaited release of WordPress 3.0. I’ve talked about this 3.0 release numerous time here, but it’s finally live. As far as I can remember this is the most awaited version because of the heap load of new features. You can tell the guys at WordPress are pretty excited about this release too judging by their release post:
Major new features in this release include a sexy new default theme called Twenty Ten. Theme developers have new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. (Twenty Ten theme shows all of that off.) Developers and network admins will appreciate the long-awaited merge of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation. As a user, you will love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click […]Read More »WordPress 3.0 is finally here

Well, perhaps other than the jump from 1.5 to 2.0 when pages were added to the equation. This time around again we’ve got a world of goodies which I already talked about before and a brand new default theme; Twenty Ten. All pretty exciting stuff.

For those of you not in the know a release candidate is a version between the Beta’s, which are for squashing bugs, and the actual version. Generally pretty solid, but not quite finished yet. Quoting from the release post over on the WordPress development blog:Read More »Is The Waiting Finally Over? WordPress Releases 3.0 Release Candidate
