"Dale I don't know why I take the time to read your Friday newsletter every week. All you do is make me feel bad about what I have done, and what I don't know. I watched the whirlpool webinar last week and it was one of the worst I have ever seen. I think you wrote the book you spoke of under a fake name. I am a chicken, not an eagle, and I don't need you or anyone else constantly reminding me of that!" You need to learn to be more uplifting"
At the bottom of every email we send from our office their is an unsubscribe link. Please feel to unsubscribe if you are not getting value from our emails, and know one is making you view the Friday newsletter on this blog, is that correct?
NOBODY CAN MAKE YOU FEEL ANYWAY ABOUT ANYTHING. You can control your own thoughts and feelings. "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he", Our doubts are traitors, which make us lose the good things in life because we FEAR to ATTEMPT. I could go on and on with WISDOM OF THE AGES STATEMENTS, that could help you if you could find away to accept Truth as Truth and change.
With that said, I can assure you the last thing I am attempting to do on Friday is make people feel bad. I do my best to encourage people. With that said, I also understand that people see things not as they are, BUT as THEY are. Today is the first day of the rest of your life and anyday, at anytime you can decide to see the world differently and enjoy everyday more. But it all starts with a DECISION and nobody but you can make that for you.
Dedicated to Your Success (And I Mean that even though I know you control that)
To everyone else, I have to go walk . I will share thoughts on Lift, Thrust, Weight, and Down tomorrow.
All Self Impovement starts with the DECISION to Change
This is a Wisdom of the Ages Statement that makes life easier after it is accpeted.
The most frustrated marketers are those that are trying to achieve better results, without making a decision.
After a decision is market then we will take the actions necessary to create new mindsets and skillsets. Until the decision is made we make 1/2 way attempts. DECISION is the start of all Success and change.
WARNING TO ALL WEBSITE OWNERS – There is a new global brute-force attack on against ALL – WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal sites (possibly other) across the entire web hosting industry. All major, small, large, medium, hosting companies, and their clients are being impacted. This is by far one of the LARGEST and very effective Cyber Attacks in recent days.
The attack is distributed, and we have seen so far over 250,000 (and counting) IPs used to attack WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and other web applications. The attack is targeting mostly the administration area of all popular free applications.
We urgently advise you that you change all of your Administrative access for any hosted WordPress / Joomla / Drupal or other web applications you may have installed. We have a separate article that focuses on selecting a strong password which you can review here:
Generally speaking a secure password consist of: upper AND lowercase letters, at least eight characters long, and including special characters such as (^%$#&@*).
In addition to change your password we advise that you read the following articles:
1) Brute force attacks – security essentials:
We suspect that this attack has been developing for some time and have peaked just this past week. The obvious symptoms of this attack are a very slow administration panel on your WordPress, Joomla, Drupal site or an inability to log in at all. In some instances your site could even intermittently go down for short periods of time. If you are using a VPS or Dedicated server – you may see high load averages and delays in accessing your server.
We have already taken several measures to mitigate this attack throughout our data center, but with the scale of this attack we urgently require all of our clients to take the necessary steps – since the distributed nature of the attack makes it hard to isolate/prevent from moving forward. If the attack continues to grow, and mature we maybe forced to take additional actions such as temporary limiting access to WP/Joomla/Drupal administration pages.
For any VPS or Dedicated server clients hosting WP/Joomla/Drupal sites and experiencing high load or slow server connection we can provide you with further assistance by implementing additional global restriction rules on your server. This may not be ideal solution however if you are under an attack that will be a required measure. Please contact us via normal support channels for further assistance. You are also welcome to copy the information from our blog posts, and share with your clients.
We created a dedicated blog post regarding this attack:
Which we will be updating with any additional information, and TIPS as we monitor the progression of the attack and develop new mitigation solutions.
