Hacking is on an up swing.

Have you seen this on your site?  What can you do?  Call us ASAP 413.528.4402


Since January 2014 there has been a lot of hacking.  The most common hack has been an injection hack.  This is where the hacker exploits a vulnerability in your site.  It could be a page that allows comments or a contact form.  Because of this we have started offering a Daily Scanning service.  This will scan your site daily and if we find any vulnerabilities we will close them.  If we find that someone has hacked your site we will inform you unless we have a standing order from you to clean the site. The site cleaning will be a $40 change.

Also check this link.  So your site has been hacked!

There are some links and a video from Google about hacking and what we can do about.
This video will tell you about:

  • How and why sites are hacked
  • Process to recover a site and remove the user-facing warning label
  • Time-to-recovery depends on extent of damage and technical skill of administrator
  • Two options:
  • Do it yourself
  • Get help from specialists


Greener Office: Less Paper

Graymatter’s Guide To Greener Business Practices
Part Three

Don’t Be A Paper Pusher.

  1. Digitize
    It does seem a bit strange that in the .digital age. we still consume enormous amounts of mashed up, bleached tree pulp, most of which gets used once or twice and then tossed or recycled (.downcycled,. as McDonough and Braungart would call it). The greenest paper is no paper at all, so keep things digital and dematerialized whenever possible. The more you do online, the less you need paper. Keep files on computers instead of in file cabinets (this also makes it easier to make offsite backup copies or take them with you when you move to a new office). Review documents onscreen rather than printing them out. Send emails instead of paper letters. New software like Greenprint helps eliminate blank pages from documents before printing and can also convert to PDF for paperless document sharing.
  2. Don.t Be a Paper Pusher
    When buying printer paper, look for recycled paper with a high percentage of post-consumer content and the minimum of chlorine bleaching. Even recycled paper gobbles up a great deal of energy, water, and chemical resources in its processing (toxic pulp slurry is the paper recycling industry.s dirty secret). When using the real stuff, print on both sides of the page when appropriate and use misprints as notepaper. Try to choose printers and photocopiers that do double-sided printing. If your office ships packages, reuse boxes and use shredded waste paper as packing material.
