Recently I had a very sobering experience that demonstrated just how serious the threat of hacked WordPress sites is. I discovered hidden link injections in some posts on a few of my old sites.

These are sites that I no longer actively maintain, they were kind of neglected, and haven't been updated in a while.

I think Google disregards these hidden type of links, but having them can penalize your site nevertheless.

Engineers from Indiana have managed to hack a Toyota Prius and Ford Escape so that the brakes, steering, speedometer and the car's electronics can be controlled remotely using a laptop.

Rent-to-own giant Aaron's is being sued in Georgia and California for allegedly spying on customers, court papers say.

The lawsuits allege that Aaron's franchises installed software on laptops and computers it rented to help it recover equipment that might not be returned. But customers say they were unaware the software existed and that it also allowed the company to steal private information, including passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers and personal documents, including, at times, intimate photographs.

"Right now, financial institutions are actively under attack. We know that. I'm not giving you any classified information," Napolitano said Wednesday during a cybersecurity event sponsored by The Washington Post. "I will say this has involved some of our nation's largest institutions." Stock exchanges also have been subject to cyberattacks during the last few years so officials know "there are vulnerabilities," she said.
