Burger King

Only Burger King offers up barbecue aroma and flame-grilled burgers. This is one of the distinguishing features the brand proudly highlights in the upcoming „Best Neighbor” campaign. Once again it comes out in a good-humored tone: now BK has decided to revamp the words on some For Rent and For Sale signs hanging on buildings next door to the stores of their largest competitors. Phrases like “FOR RENT – Don’t worry: tenant below never grills”; “FOR RENT – Don’t worry: the neighbor doesn’t barbecue”, “FOR RENT – Don’t worry: The neighbor doesn’t barbecue”, and “FOR RENT – BBQ smoke-free tenant below” are part of the campaign created by DAVID São Paulo and Madrid. The signs were deployed in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, where the best locations for the campaign were found. In one of the buildings, the sign „FOR SALE – Opportunity: neighbor never grills. Ever” brings the contact number (55 11 3022-3359). In this case, a caller to this number will get the following message: „When picking an apartment, no one really wants annoying smoke: that’s why it’s great to have a neighbor who doesn’t barbecue. But when your stomach growls, a flame-grilled patty on a Burger King sandwich makes a heck of a difference. Interested in this building? Please send an email to vizinhoperfeito@burgerking.com.br”. Prospect buyers are directed to the real seller.

The 2020 WordPress Plugin Hacking Debacle

Post pobrano z: The 2020 WordPress Plugin Hacking Debacle

By now, anyone who has the internet has heard about how hackers targeted WordPress plugins during January and February 2020. Quite understandably, this hack job left many WordPress users wary about the damage done. For one of the most prevalent website template providers on the planet, this was an eye-opener.

This hack job was also
a heads-up for WordPress customers to keep their plugins updated. To avoid future security risks, customers should take the plunge and invest in free or
paid security plugins. For some business owners, these hack jobs may be a
simple annoyance, but for others, this type of security breach can be costly.

Which plugins were besieged by hackers?

Nefarious hackers had a field day of targeting the most vulnerable plugins they could identify on WordPress. They made a point of honing in on susceptible plugins which contained pre-identified security defects. These plugins had been newly patched to eliminate bugs. Either that or the hackers were able to unearth ‘zero-day exploits’ in a range of these add-ons.

These ‘zero-day exploits’ relate to weak areas in plugins that the developer has overlooked or is unaware of. A lack of knowledge of vulnerability also means that the developer does not have a patch for that particular plugin.

Some of the plugins worst hit were:

  • Duplicator – the worst hit with over 1 million installations compromised
  • ThemeGrill Demo Importer – attracted 200k hits
  • Async JavaScript – over 100k hits
  • WP Database Reset – 80k hits
  • Profile Builder Plugin – approximately 65k hits
  • Modern Events Calendar Lite – 40k hits
  • Flexible Checkout Fields for WooCommerce – 20k hits
  • 10Web Map Builder for Google Maps – 20k hits

Several other plugins
were also impacted, including ThemeREX Addons, CP Contact Form with PayPal and Simple Fields.

WordPress hacker plugin fallout

Reports initially suggested
that up to 2,000 customer websites were breached by hackers. Other than the plugins affected as indicated above, traffic
was also rerouted to scam sites. On unwittingly selecting installed reroutes, visitors found themselves
being presented with unexpected results. These included bogus survey requests,
free gifts, false downloads of Adobe Flash Player and unsolicited subscriptions
for announcements.

Malicious
JavaScript was used to infect vulnerable add-ons to redirect traffic, insert
other malware to impact theme files, and gain unauthorized access to customer
files. Hackers increased the damage implemented by creating plugin directories
that were fake. As a result, WordPress encouraged website owners to disallow
primary folder modification to minimize further potential risk.

Why do hackers hack?

Some do it for
fun, because they can, because they are malicious, can gather personal details
for gain, or because they want to claim some sort of ransom from their victims.

To place
hacking in perspective, a study by Juniper Research forecast that hacking would cost up to $2 trillion
during 2019.

A large 43 percent of cybercrimes are aimed at small businesses.

A study conducted at Maryland university indicated that a cyber-attack occurs every 39 seconds.

More than 230,000 pieces of malware are generated daily.

While there is
no need to panic in the face of these figures, necessary precautions are needed
to protect your website and your personal information.

Discovered unwanted intrusions on your website?

It is scary to find
that your website has been hacked. If you have web development skills and are
technically skilled, you’ll probably know what the best course of action is.

For the web
development novices, the best advice is also to – stay calm, and look for these
clues that your website has been compromised:

  • the most obvious clue – you cannot log into your own site
  • the site is unusually sluggish
  • you suddenly decide it might be a good idea to look at the dashboard for user accounts and see that you have attracted some foreign interest – unwelcome users
  • you receive messages of site re-directions from visitors, Google hacking notification, site suspension
  • your site is blacklisted on search engines because it definitely has been hacked, or is ranked as promoting the sale of illegal pharmaceuticals
  • antivirus and malware warnings from your installed software or warnings from site visitors

You will be in a good position to get your website operational if you take a deep breath. Place your site in maintenance mode, roll up your sleeves and get ready for business again.

Fix the mess made by the hackers

You can clean up your
site by following some basic steps. Backup, scan, do a deep clean – then take
prevention measures related to what originally instigated site susceptibility.

Site backup. Do this after you have placed your site in maintenance mode, and after you have been able to log in. This is a precaution so that you don’t lose data unnecessarily with a cleanup plugin.

Pick a security add-on. You can look through this list and pick a malware plugin to deliver a  deep scan. MalCare is recommended for an automatic site cleanup to ward off further attacks. This plugin prompts a backup through BlogVault, prior to cleanup.

Download MalCare, install
and scan
. After selecting
MalCare, follow the steps to create your account prior to being allowed to
install this add-on. After installation, you can open this program and follow
the prompts to begin a scan.

Select autoclean. The plugin will indicate the number of
vulnerabilities detected. Simply pick autoclean to remove hacked files and
malicious scripts. Choose the ‘public_html’ option, using your host or server
name, FTP type, user name, and password. Follow these steps to retrieve
this information if it is not readily available. Select ‘Apply Fix’.

Remove vulnerabilities
and install security.
Follow this link to remove vulnerabilities, and make safe updates to your
website.

A thorough cleanup. Do another scan. Make another backup once your site has been cleaned. Activate the add-ons that you want and remove those that you are not using. Create complex passwords (write these down in a safe place offline). Installing an audit plugin will help keep tabs on-site activity, alerting you to unwanted changes.

Run updates for other
add-ons. Send a request to Google to whitelist your site if needed. Check if
your host has suspended your site. Contact them if it has been so that you can
get back to business.

Moving forward

Where customers
realize that their websites have been impacted, or are using any of the plugins
listed, they should be updated promptly. A full 98 percent of WordPress hackings take place because users fail to update their
plugins.

It is further advised
that customers continue to implement updates as and when these become
available. Updates are generated for the purpose of minimizing security risks,
and to remain compatible with related functions. Being attentive to upgrades
will help to ward off threats.

Benefits of Approval Studio Proofing Tool for Designers and Creative Teams

Post pobrano z: Benefits of Approval Studio Proofing Tool for Designers and Creative Teams

Among all of the design agencies’ headaches, artwork proofing is probably one of the most acute ones. Forwarding countless numbers of requests, following up your approvers with reminders that they have a file to check, searching for their feedback in the endless pile of emails or messages… Quite daunting, to say the least, and quite expensive too – the amounts of time and, as a result, money spent on this back-and-forth game are quite significant. However, there is a solution that would allow you to cut your turnaround time by up to 35% – a specialized proofing software.

One of such programs is Approval Studio. It is a proofing tool developed specifically to help designers and creative teams spend less time on boring and repetitive processes and make the whole workflow more organized and efficient. There are quite a few features with which Approval Studio helps you to streamline proofing of visual assets, so let’s create a project, upload some file, and see what we can do with it.

№1: Sharing files

After the upload, users can start sharing their artwork with other reviewers. There are two types of reviewers: internal – they can access your dashboard or even get tasks assigned to them in Approval’s Pro version – and external ones. Let’s concentrate on the latter.

A big blue “Share” button in the upper right corner is the starting point of your cooperation with the clients. You can send the invitation to Approval Studio to their email or share a short link via your messenger chat – with a password or making the file read-only if you like. Your reviewer will be able to see the same thing you see and add annotations. 

№2: Online review tool

Approval Studio offers advanced annotation possibilities that include a set of different shapes, namely a point, a circle, a square, and a free-form (if you need to draw something by hand). Users can pick a color for each annotation, which is helpful when there are several reviewers. Also, there is a possibility to bind one annotation to several places in the artwork if there is the same repeated mistake or if you need to apply similar changes, let’s say, to the fonts or colors. Annotations will appear on the mockup itself and on the comments panel to the right.

If you need to check the artwork from another angle or annotate a much smaller detail, it is not a problem at all. Approval Studio allows rotating the image as much as you like and zooms it without descaling or quality loss so that you can read even the tiniest text.

The main thing is that the system is totally live – whenever they add a comment, you will see it instantly on your screen with no need to refresh the page. It works like a built-in messenger to make your review sessions more convenient.

After the discussion is over, the last thing that’s left is approving or rejecting the file. At this stage, it’s important to be careful, because you will not be able to add any new annotations to this version after you confirm your verdict.

№3: Versioning and 4 unique compare modes

The annotations were added, the artwork was discussed, and now it’s high time for a designer to upload a new version of the artwork. When it is done, the cycle on a dashboard will switch to №2, and the review process will repeat, although there will be one small difference. Starting with the second cycle, you will be able to compare the versions of the file to find out if all issues were fixed.

Approval Studio helps you with it significantly with 4 AI-driven compare modes. First, let’s choose the version that we want to compare – the ones that were annotated will be marked by the number of comments added to them. By the way, you can turn on annotations in the compare mode if you need them.

Side-by-side shows you two images next to each other with the ability to highlight differences if you tick the necessary checkbox. Fader will let you manually switch from one version to another moving the slider with edits highlighted in the center. Difference will just cut out the things that were changed and show them to you. Toggle, which is by far my favorite one, will switch from one version to the other dynamically.

№4: Comprehensive reporting

After the project is ready, many agencies need to deal with the accountancy thing. Clients often forget which requests they made, how long it all was supposed to take, and why these or those changes were applied at all. To avoid such confusion, Approval Studio provides full PDF reports on the whole project or each asset separately with the exhausting amount of information. The data provided range from time and date of each action completed by each user or reviewer and ending with thumbnails of each version with all annotations.

Also, users can check project history created for internal use to see the chronology actions committed within the project.

№5: Highly customizable user settings

Every company has their own approaches and workflows. Approval Studio is a very flexible proofing tool that lets their users adjust the settings as much as possible. To begin with, it concerns the language choice – among a solid pack of 8 localizations, each user and even external reviewer can choose their own, which is especially beneficial when you are working with an international team.

Also, there are many different notification types, the ability to change the time zone, and add companies if you work on multiple projects with different clients.

Company info provides a range of important customizable features like a personalizable review invitation where you can replace the standard text with your own or custom approval confirmation that lets you make sure your reviewers follow your company’s policies.

Conclusion

Approval Studio is one of those tools that are a must for each design agency. All these features make the process of artwork approval significantly simpler and can save a lot of resources and nerve cells. The tool has much more cool tricks up their sleeve, so sign up if you want to check Approval Studio out! Also, there are brief and simple tutorials on their YouTube channel which you can check to see everything we’ve discussed here in motion!

It is a proofing tool developed specifically to help designers and creative teams spend less time on boring and repetitive processes and make the whole workflow more organized and efficient. There are quite a few features with which Approval Studio helps you to streamline proofing of visual assets, so let’s create a project, upload some file, and see what we can do with it.

№1: Sharing files

After the upload, users can start sharing their artwork with other reviewers. There are two types of reviewers: internal – they can access your dashboard or even get tasks assigned to them in Approval’s Pro version – and external ones. Let’s concentrate on the latter.

A big blue “Share” button in the upper right corner is the starting point of your cooperation with the clients. You can send the invitation to Approval Studio to their email or share a short link via your messenger chat – with a password or making the file read-only if you like. Your reviewer will be able to see the same thing you see and add annotations. 

№2: Online review tool

Approval Studio offers advanced annotation possibilities that include a set of different shapes, namely a point, a circle, a square, and a free-form (if you need to draw something by hand). Users can pick a color for each annotation, which is helpful when there are several reviewers. Also, there is a possibility to bind one annotation to several places in the artwork if there is the same repeated mistake or if you need to apply similar changes, let’s say, to the fonts or colors. Annotations will appear on the mockup itself and on the comments panel to the right.

If you need to check the artwork from another angle or annotate a much smaller detail, it is not a problem at all. Approval Studio allows rotating the image as much as you like and zooms it without descaling or quality loss so that you can read even the tiniest text.

The main thing is that the system is totally live – whenever they add a comment, you will see it instantly on your screen with no need to refresh the page. It works like a built-in messenger to make your review sessions more convenient.

After the discussion is over, the last thing that’s left is approving or rejecting the file. At this stage, it’s important to be careful, because you will not be able to add any new annotations to this version after you confirm your verdict.

№3: Versioning and 4 unique compare modes

The annotations were added, the artwork was discussed, and now it’s high time for a designer to upload a new version of the artwork. When it is done, the cycle on a dashboard will switch to №2, and the review process will repeat, although there will be one small difference. Starting with the second cycle, you will be able to compare the versions of the file to find out if all issues were fixed.

Approval Studio helps you with it significantly with 4 AI-driven compare modes. First, let’s choose the version that we want to compare – the ones that were annotated will be marked by the number of comments added to them. By the way, you can turn on annotations in the compare mode if you need them.

Side-by-side shows you two images next to each other with the ability to highlight differences if you tick the necessary checkbox. Fader will let you manually switch from one version to another moving the slider with edits highlighted in the center. Difference will just cut out the things that were changed and show them to you. Toggle, which is by far my favorite one, will switch from one version to the other dynamically.

№4: Comprehensive reporting

After the project is ready, many agencies need to deal with the accountancy thing. Clients often forget which requests they made, how long it all was supposed to take, and why these or those changes were applied at all. To avoid such confusion, Approval Studio provides full PDF reports on the whole project or each asset separately with the exhausting amount of information. The data provided range from time and date of each action completed by each user or reviewer and ending with thumbnails of each version with all annotations.

Also, users can check project history created for internal use to see the chronology actions committed within the project.

№5: Highly customizable user settings

Every company has their own approaches and workflows. Approval Studio is a very flexible proofing tool that lets their users adjust the settings as much as possible. To begin with, it concerns the language choice – among a solid pack of 8 localizations, each user and even external reviewer can choose their own, which is especially beneficial when you are working with an international team.

Also, there are many different notification types, the ability to change the time zone, and add companies if you work on multiple projects with different clients.

Company info provides a range of important customizable features like a personalizable review invitation where you can replace the standard text with your own or custom approval confirmation that lets you make sure your reviewers follow your company’s policies.

Conclusion

Approval Studio is one of those tools that are a must for each design agency. All these features make the process of artwork approval significantly simpler and can save a lot of resources and nerve cells. The tool has much more cool tricks up their sleeve, so sign up if you want to check Approval Studio out!

Auto-Archival

I’m sure most of us have used the ol’ Wayback Machine to access some site that’s gone offline. I don’t actually know how it decides what sites to archive and when, but you can tell it to save pages. There is UI for it right on its homepage.

Also, there is a little trick…

Typing https://t.co/R5w2bQZKWz in front of any URL saves that content in the Wayback Machine forever. Nasty tweet? Type https://t.co/R5w2bQZKWz in front of the URL, and archive it forever. Hat tip: @t.

That’s still a bit manual though.

Brian Kardell was given access to some kind of secret API that allows submission of pages, and he built a public service around it anyone can use. Here’s his blog post on it. You hit the endpoint with some JSON in your choice of a couple of formats and it’ll do the rest. The idea is that other systems would use this for submissions. Imagine a WordPress plugin that hit it when you hit submit or update on a post. Or a Netlify build plugin that pinged this as you deployed.

I’m not entirely sure what the difference is between this service and the URL technique from Zeldman’s tweet, but I gotta imagine an API-based submission service is more reliable.

The big idea is that you’re telling this service to archive your page forever, which is the mission of the Internet Archive. So, should your site ever go away, the content lives on. So you’d better want that before you do this!

Client-Side Image Editing on Mobile

Post pobrano z: Client-Side Image Editing on Mobile

Michael Scharnagl:

Ever wanted to easily convert an image to a grayscale image on your phone? I do sometimes, and that’s why I build a demo using the Web Share Target API to achieve exactly that.

For this I used the Service Worker way to handle the data. Once the data is received on the client, I use drawImage from canvas to draw the image in canvas, use the grayscale filter to convert it to a grayscale image and output the final image.

So you „install” the little microsite like a PWA, then you natively „share” an image to it and it comes back edited. Clever. Android on Chrome only at the moment.

Reminds me of this „Browser Functions” idea in reverse. That was a server that did things a browser can do, this is a browser doing things a server normally does.
