All WPBlog Support Clients have had their WordPress Blogs Updated to the newest release today. The latest version is 3.9.2. It contains a bunch of security fixes and I would expect this will be the last WordPress Update before the new 4.0 Version comes out.
WordPress 3.9.2 is now available as a security release for all previous versions. We strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.
This release fixes a possible denial of service issue in PHP’s XML processing, reported by Nir Goldshlager of the Salesforce.com Product Security Team. It was fixed by Michael Adams and Andrew Nacin of the WordPress security team and David Rothstein of the Drupal security team. This is the first time our two projects have coordinated on joint security releases.
WordPress 3.9.2 also contains other security changes:
- Fixes a possible but unlikely code execution when processing widgets (WordPress is not affected by default), discovered by Alex Concha of the WordPress security team.
- Prevents information disclosure via XML entity attacks in the external GetID3 library, reported by Ivan Novikov of ONSec.
- Adds protections against brute attacks against CSRF tokens, reported by David Tomaschik of the Google Security Team.
- Contains some additional security hardening, like preventing cross-site scripting that could be triggered only by administrators.
This doesn’t apply to WPBlog Support customers, you’re already up to date. Of course if their are any issues with your site after the core WordPress files have been updated make sure to request a job done for you at http://www.WPBlogSupport.com[wdca_ad id=”14115″ ]

This post is part of a monthly series summarizing some stats and figures from the Akismet universe. Feel free to browse all of the posts in the series.
In July, Akismet saw 5,608,437,500 pieces of spam come through. If each piece of spam were a book, there would be enough books to fill 156 Libraries of Congress (the largest library in the world).
There was a small increase in spam numbers since June – about 5%, but a 71% increase from last year in July. That’s about the same yearly increase as the one was saw in last month.
We also saw 310,275,000 legitimate comments made, which makes up only 5% of the total comments we see going around. If each real comment were a book, there would enough to fill only 8 Libraries of Congress (still not bad!).
Our busiest day was July 8 with about 240 million pieces of spam, and our slowest day was 6 with 133 million comments. Not a big range.
Overall, we missed only about 0.0206% of all spam comments this month. Although there weren’t any big fluctuations in our missed spam numbers this month, your missed spam numbers may be different. If you’re seeing more missed spam than usual come through, please do contact us and we’ll be happy to help 🙂.
Here’s how much spam and ham came through each day of the month:
Here are some interesting articles on spam from around the web we liked this month:
When it comes right down to it, that’s what we all want to do right?
Revenue, income, cash or money, doesn’t matter what you call it, all comes from a sale of some sort. Our Job is to turn as many conversations as we can into cash.
The frantic pace of communication today make the “art” of persuasion even more valuable.
No one has the time to be sold, we like to buy what we want, when we want and for as little as possible.
Where does that leave you the entrepreneur, independent professional or small business owner?

Most people work from some sort of to-do or task list. Whether it’s on paper, in a calendar, evernote, onenote or any name you can come up with. I was looking at my to-do list this morning and after talking to 2 clients I had phone consultations with I was reminded of a simple idea that Bob Proctor taught me many years ago.
He said to be successful as a sales professional you only had to do 1 thing.
Be out of the office in front of a customer by 8 AM every morning.
Have an appointment every morning scheduled for 8 AM.
I was thinking about this after looking through the tasks I had assigned myself this morning and asking myself of the tasks I had listed on my to-do list which ones were ones that I CAN do and which ones were tasks that I SHOULD do?
Whether it’s your business or your WordPress Blog.. there are tasks that you probably CAN do bust the more important question is are they tasks that you SHOULD be doing?
My Mom never told me about this and that’s why it’s the topic for today’s Secret. Listen now…
… which is really sad when you think about it. By now you’d think I’d have my message straight. A single concise offer to a starving crowd who would love to whip out their wallets and give me everything they had in it.
I think about marketing too much. Always trying to find the latest and greatest tool and tactic to move my business to the next level. As a result the “BFC” that I make is often muddled or changes depending on whom I’m talking too.
An easy way to tell is by the number of Social Media handles I/You have and each of the associated profiles.
My Mom never told me about this and that’s why it’s the topic for today’s Secret. Listen now…
I really have too many…
Part of the reason I’ve been working on consolidating my business activities stems from the number of handles I found myself having to manage.. Social media nicknames and handles give you a good ideas of how focused your business is.
I had too many handles.
At the time they seemed like the right thing to do. I had different sites for different services and products. In the end they are too scattered. so here’s the new twitter handle

Keeping your WordPress site save and sound is more important than many bloggers think. It only becomes important after your WordPress Blog has been hacked or compromised by the bad guys!
Having Managed WordPress Hosting means that your host takes care of the technical security stuff which leaves more time for you to focus on the marketing stuff. Here a FullContact Sites we add the WordFence plugin to your sites for an added level of security. WordFence does stuff like regular scans of your site to look for files that may have been changed or uploaded and sophisticated filtering and blocking of bad guy attempts to login to your site. (You’d be surprised how much this happens – The current frequency of attacks we’re seeing across all WordPress sites running Wordfence is 7043 attacks per minute
All FullContact Sites have the newest version of WordFence running today which includes these new fixes and features:
Feature: Prevent discovery of usernames through ‘?/author=N’ scans. New option under login security which you can enable.
Wordfence is the Leading Cyber Security solution for WordPress. That’s why we include it with your Managed WordPress Hosting account or FullContact eLearning Campus. It provides a Complete Anti-Virus and Firewall Package for your WordPress Website including Two Factor Authentication, a Firewall incorporating Machine Learning and Tools to help Recover from a Hack.
… and you’ll be able to sell your courses online in about 15 minutes!
This is a special announcement for Coaches, Consultants, Speakers and Subject Matter Experts who want to sell their own courses.
If you want a turn-key ready to go WordPress Campus complete with everything you need to train your clients and students online I’d like to help. I have a new ready to go version of my “FullContact Courses” site that I’m installing for 5 of my existing clients.
