“A useful guide on how to use Apple’s new privacy features in iOS 14. Within that, I included some steps detailing how you can prevent advertisers from tracking you ahead of the planned opt-in feature—which will hopefully become available in an updated version of iOS 14 in 2021.
So for now, in your Settings, go to Privacy > Tracking. Here you can turn off the ability to allow apps to request to track you across apps and websites owned by other companies.”

All super users / admins on all Tendenci hosted sites will need to reset your passwords today. This can be done at <your site> /accounts/password/reset/
Why? People reuse passwords. You shouldn’t, and you know that, but you probably do. Therefore, in an overabundance of caution given the large number of data breaches on the Internet this year, we are resetting all superuser passwords to a long randomized string unique to each. I’d also like to emphasize that:
We have not had a data breach,
Your site has NOT been hacked to our knowledge (every site has it’s own “silo” meaning your site is isolated from all others in it’s own containers.)
A LOT of other companies have reported breaches and humans tend to reuse passwords.
Security is our top priority. Security is an inconvenience. Security best-practices are far better than the alternative. We apologize for the inconvenience but it is, after all, what we are paid to do.
This decision was made by me, Ed Schipul, the founder and CEO. And it was done without advance notice specifically to prevent bad-actors from knowing about it in advance and sending phishing emails to you. The Internet is unfortunately a rough place right now. Stay safe out there!
In recent years, many Russia hacking groups have emerged as one of the most sophisticated nation-state actors in cyberspace, producing highly specialized hacking techniques and toolkits for cyber espionage.
WhatsApp has patched a vulnerability that allowed attackers to install spyware on victims’ phones.
Though the exact number of targeted WhatsApp users is not yet known, WhatsApp engineers did confirm that only a “select number” of users were targeted by the NSO Group spyware using this vulnerability.
