Round the Office Roundup

Happy Black Friday one and all! Today marks the start of the busy sales season heading up to Christmas. Speaking of, have you prepared your website to handle the festive season? We thought we’d start off the weekend vibes with a roundup of all the weird and wonderful stuff we’ve been up to lately. Tech Stuff WordPress endured a couple of security vulnerabilities this month, starting off with a potential SQL injection attack. This was patched with the release of 4.8.3 however, and if you’re keeping up to date, you should now already be up to version 4.9. Later on…

First and foremost, if you are a Windows computer user and you’ve missed the news lately, we summed up the need-to-know points about the latest wide-spread cyber security attack, Wannacry, here. We recently hosted a tour around our very own data centre for staff who were yet to visit, so that they could see where the magic happens in our state of the art facility. You can follow in their footsteps with the image gallery below! A few special occasions have passed since our last roundup! One of our rather trusting Engineers, Matt, let…

Welcome back to another Round the Office Roundup! As it always seems to do, time is flying this year. We’ve had another busy week around the office. What the Heck is ModSec First up, we’ve been making some changes to our shared hosting ModSecurity rules. ModSecurity is a firewall module that helps protect the websites housed within our servers from various attacks. As programming languages evolve, the rules enforced by ModSec need to be updated to continue to keep our web hosting platform as secure as possible. We have been trialing a new ModSecurity release recently, identifying potential issues along the way,…

Welcome to another edition of our office roundup! We have a problem. A severe problem. Thy name is doughnuts and life around the office has not quite been the same since this obsession burst forth, bringing with it a sugary hysteria. Every Friday, or sometimes Thursday if we can’t contain the urge anymore, the ‘doughnut run’ occurs and our Nutella levels are promptly restored. We’ll take absolutely any excuse to have them, such as last Friday’s St Patrick’s Day… Pictured above: Paul, Tom, Chris, Jay and Sean. If you missed it, we recently had two pint-sized, furry visitors from Sydney Dogs and…

Welcome to another Round the Office Roundup! It’s been another busy week full of… things… things that we can’t quite yet reveal – but will very soon, we promise! Aside from that however, on Friday, we had a social event at Essen Restaurant & Beer Cafe in Broadway. Plenty of delicious German fare was had by all, which was rather fitting as the theme of the evening was fare-welling our Level 4 Network Engineer, Shane, who leaves us now to settle in the great Deutschland. Lucky for us, Shane will remain part of the team from all the way across…
