There's a new security update to Wordpress.

As soon as this problem went public hackers will try to access sites that are not updated.

WordPress 4.6.1 is now available. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

Chrome is embarking on a crusade to crack down on websites that still aren't using encryption, and it starts with the latest version of the browser, Chrome 56.

Chrome 56 is launching in January, and will implement a new warning that you'll see on any login sites that are still unencrypted. The pages will be marked as "not secure" in a small window by the address bar, which should help usher browsers away from any site that's still not utilizing HTTPS. In the future, these pages will also be denoted with a special red triangle symbol as well.
