October 15, 2018
Chadwick Meyer
The internet is a lot like the wildwest—it operates on trust with very little oversight and no policing, everyone has to look out for themselves. Which makes it very easy for bad actors to anonymously disrupt a website if they want to. One of the most common and difficult types of attacks to respond to is a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service). This type of attack isn't necessarily a security vulnerability, but it does cause a "Denial of Service" when so much traffic comes to your web server that it is not able to serve real visitors. And the ...

Compliance Changes for the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

May 23, 2018
Chadwick Meyer
You may notice that a new Cookie Consent notice appears at the top of your site today. This is a new requirement for compliance with GDPR, and we've added it to try to help your site be compliant. As of May 25, 2018, websites that process Personally Identifying Information of European residents, need to be compliant with the new GDPR rules (General Data Protection Regulation). There is still a lot of confusion (and hysteria) around the exact scope of this law. But over the coming weeks and months we will likely see the European Union audit ...

Google ReCaptcha Updated

March 07, 2018
Chadwick Meyer
Some time ago, Google had updated it's reCaptcha spam filtering plugin to be more user-friendly, labeling it as V2. In case you're not familiar with it, reCaptcha is a powerful tool that has been used on most Gutensite forms and contact pages to prevent robots from obnoxiously sending spam emails out to you. Effective February 28th, 2018 the original reCaptcha V1 spam filter has been deprecated and can no longer be used. What this means for you is that if you have not made use of and added the new reCaptcha to your website yet, you'll find ...
