We bought a new WHM/cPanel server recently and once setup we started getting emails about a suspicious process, this instantly caused panic as you might expect!

UPDATED 03/01/2017 – Fixed a bug in the code, sorry!

Recently I had a problem where Google PageSpeed Insights where it was giving me a huge list of PNG images that it said could be compressed, sometimes up to 90%! However I had already compressed the images using Photoshop. Unfortunately Photoshop was not compressing the images as Google PageSpeed wanted, so I tried using the […]

 

So I’m sure everyone has heard about the Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL, it appears SSL has not been as secure as you would think – anyone is able to fetch stored SSL directly from the server and read the contents. Luckily there has been an update released to fix the Heartbleed vulnerability, and all you […]
