WordPress' recent 4.2.3 "#security and maintenance" release reminds us, again, that in a world of #software, obscure code to most of us that controls things, we will always been vulnerable.

The IRS, Home Depot, Sony Entertainment, major banks--these are but the newsworthy victims of #hackers. But if you ever have a chance, visit the CloudFlare.com site and read about the real Internet world of things. 

You'll discover that bots, spammers and other attackers are constantly swarming, like locusts, around websites, trying to squeeze their little bodies into the holes (ports) that are the portals of hardware and software.

While #mobile IoT's--especially "smart" devices--have yet to become the major targets of the locusts, their turn is coming. From sensors communicating with distant servers (MTM-machine-to-machine) to the world's electrical grids, the sci-fi movies that entertain us about nuclear plant meltdowns are the possibilities of our digital future.

The Wordpress community may patch a hole to prevent "cross-scripting," but the Earth continues spinning, millions of mobile devices come off the assembly lines and, somehow, the world seems a less-friendly place. 
WordPress 4.2.3 is now available. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. WordPress versions 4.2.2 and earlier are affec...

So far, Wordpress 4.2.3 seems stable. So the blogs and websites of the world are protected, I think.

Dish Networks tries a fast one. After investing in two small telecom companies that got a 25% discount, the FCC said "no way, Dish. This only shows the intensity of Dish Network's desire to get into the wireless cellular business.  
The Federal Communications Commission is poised to reject $3.3 billion in discounts requested by partners of satellite-TV provider Dish Network Corp. in the government’s $45 billion airwave auction earlier this year, according to people familiar with the matter.

About Your Skin

Fascinating discussion about the history and culture of our skin.

We lost our fur a long while ago, started sweating and...well, it's all history from then on. 
Skin may seem like a superficial human attribute, but it’s the first thing we notice about anyone we meet. Nina Jablonski came to…

NYTimes: Can the Bacteria in Your Gut Explain Your Mood?

Fascinating research about the human gut.

Could it be that bacteria in our intestines cause changes in our brains?
The rich array of microbiota in our intestines can tell us more than you might think.

If you've never installed Malwarebytes on your computer, you're missing out on a free tool that scrubs your hard disk and system memory free of malware not always found by other tools. I use it once a month to keep the bad guys away from my data. After all, if it can happen to the Federal Government, your precious data is a piece of cake.

What do you do when you're the dominant player in Corporate America computing operating systems, when your consumer laptop and mobile base sucks? 3% mobile phone share. Falling  OS revenues from PC manufacturers. Just lost 7.8 billion. Laid off close to 8,000 employees. And what you've got is Windows 12 about to launch on 100 million machines. 
Pressure from competitors has compelled the company to make the upgrade free and to find new ways to profit from some of its big moneymakers.

It's inconceivable in 2015 that a country like Greece could go bankrupt. But that's the status of its banks.

The New Yorker just published a sane article about the situation.
