Why website security is important

Earlier this week i received an email from the Google Search Console Team informing me about a website that contained hacked content.


The site was a WordPress site i had developed for a client a couple of years ago, the reason i received the email was that it was still linked to my Google Search Console, previously known as Webmaster Tools.

Why not to set your iPhone date to January 1 1970

On 15, Feb 2016 | In Blog | By stephen little

An image has been circulating the internet for a few days now, which i believe originated from 4chan, which tells iPhone owners to change the date on their device to January 1 1970 then restart phone to get the classic Apple Macintosh theme on there phone. DON’T DO IT, it will brick you phone making it an expensive paperweight.

The problem cannot be fixed with a reset through iTunes either, it will require a physical repair, and in some cases may require the phone to be replaced.



The bug appears to only affect 64-bit iOS devices, meaning iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini 2 and newer are affected. It’s almost certainly related to the same Unix glitch that caused Facebook to wish people a happy 46 years on the service; the date 1/1/70 has an internal value of zero on a Unix system, which in this case is leading to a software freakout. The why and who are less important, though, than the what, and the what is: don’t set your phone’s calendar back. Live in the present. It’ll save you a lot of future headaches.Brian Barrett - Wired

Google is now sending out messages from webmaster tools informing website owners when there site is not mobile friendly.

“Google systems have tested 153 pages from your site and found that 100% of them have critical mobile usability errors. The errors on these 153 pages severely affect how mobile users are able to experience your website. These pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.”
