2 new forum sections – devoted to 'Security' & 'Performance, please
‘Security’, is a major concern of mine at present. Spending much time devising and implementing countermeasures to mushrooming volumes of increasingly highly sophisticated attacks against customer sites.
I have just been rereading @foxly ‘s excellent (old) posts here: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/here-come-the-spammers/ – also of hacker tools such as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XRumer.
i have lots of information, techniques & ideas to share and discuss with members here, but a single (mortal) thread is nether sufficient, nor appropriate, given the topic is enormous & constantly evolving.
the flip side of countermeasures is, that along with the attacks themselves, they come at some considerable performance cost. thus. notwithstanding that ‘Performance’ is an enormous and constantly evolving subject area in its own right.
thus, please would forum admin create 2 new forum sections ‘Security’, & ‘Performance’ in order to keep our discussions … locatable, manageable and focused.
please support this thread if you agree.
