Scary Zero Day Bug With WordPress

Found this on +reddit​ I haven't tried testing but if you use WP Comments? Your site is probably at risk. Even with 4.2.

I turned off comments altogether ... But it was unrelated to this. Scary stuff!

Just hope WP patches this quick!

WP Smush It is Gone - But...

There are still some great tools on and offline for you to optimize your images with! I wrote this in 2014 but it still applies.

And if you are running the WP-Smush.it plugin? You will either need to pay for the pro service or just uninstall it.

Are You a #MarketingMisfit ?

I'm happy to be one. It means not going with the flow and doing your own thing. The important thing here is that it has to work for you and your readers.

Thanks +Wade Harman​ for the article and #mention!
Are you a marketing misfit? Perhaps in social media, or maybe content marketing? Here's why it's ok to be different and a little weird.

Protect Your Data at Starbucks... Get a VPN Connection

Going on a public wifi is just asking for your data to be stolen. The scary part is they don't even have to "hack" it. It's a simple application or script usually ran in Linux (or Windows) that allows you to see all of that information floating around on the public network.  

So... they are technically just data miners who steal your info. ;)

Even your home wireless isn't all that protected. It's just a nice way of saying "Please don't join my network without asking."

You'll want to not only run a VPN while in these places - but make sure you have an up to date Anti Virus/Malwarebytes, and a software firewall to keep you protected even if your connection is encrypted. 

Thanks for sharing this +MaAnna Stephenson and +Dave Webster

+Jason Mathes I'm looking forward to learning it. That said, when I create a blog graphic, I experience no headache -- this is just something I do!

Windows 10 Upgrade Will Be Free?

For Windows 7/8/8.1 users. Guess this is Microsoft's way of apologizing?

I think the gif pretty much says it all lol.

Thanks for sharing +Tshaka Armstrong 

 #Microsoft #Windows10
 
#Windows10 is a free upgrade from Windows 8.1, even devices still running Windows 7 for the first year. Smooth move Microsoft!

Also, loving the new/old Start Menu. Lol It looks like a really nice hybrid of the traditional and Metro concepts.

I'm Working Against the Clock - My Stomach is My Worst Enemy

Eh? Well you see there is this Stomach Virus going around. First it hit the baby girl my Mom-in-Law babysits. So of course she gets it. I did my best to stay away. But guess what....

Now I have it!  Nothing like trying to cook chicken fajitas when all you think is "oh jeebus I hope I don't heave all over this". 

Thank ye god's for Zofran! (It's a very strong anti nauseous medication)  Its the only thing that has enabled me to get my work done before I go crawl back in bed and hope to disappear until it goes away!

Ok... well Goodnight GPlus. I'll be back in a few days.

Time For a New Look!

So I took a long hiatus from everything online. Personal stuff, projects, life, etc. just meant I was burnt out.

So now I'm finally getting off my butt. So here's the start. A new face for avgjoegeek!

Take a look and let me know what you think! And yes there are some bugs to work out.

So I Went to Target for Dental Floss... (NSFW?)

And was offered the officially licensed 50 Shades of Grey Vibrating Cock Ring. 

I guess they shoot from the hip a bit more in California. Never could see this flying here in a Kansas Walmart :-D
