The extras – for even more extra news, check out our Facebook, or Twitter page!

US, NATO accuses China of massive Microsoft Hack – A bit of a change from accusing Russia, but it seems to be a similar kind of accusation. We shall see where this one goes….
SolarWinds Hackers still targeting Microsoft, focus on support staff – This kind of hack is rather common as far as I am aware; attack the little guys, get into the system through them and slowly worm your way deeper into the system until you can do some damage. I almost feel bad for Microsoft, they seem to be being attacked from multiple directions these days….
Termly Acquires GDPR/CCPA Cookie Consent Banner, Turns Free Plugin Into a Commercial SaaS Product – The pattern continues! And now people are noticing and making a point to make an issue about this. If anyone out there is dealing with the recent acquisition of this cookie consent banner, my condolences.
Wordcamp USA will be held on Oct. 21, pending decision on in person meet-ups – Once they have made a final decision we the mass will know whether or not this will be an in person or an online.
Most hated programming languages around – Or so these guys say. In order from the most hated and below they list: COBOL, VBA, Matlab, Objective-C, and Groovy. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve even heard of these before… but I’m not a coder. I would love to hear some feedback from any coder’s out there – what do you think?
New volume record for ransomware attempts in the first half of 2021 – This is attempted ransomware volume record, not actual successful attacks, but it is still a little unnerving to see. There have been more than 300 million for the first half of 2021.
Amazon fined $887 million for GDPR Privacy Violations – This is an interesting read. it’s not often the giants get fined an amount that actually has an effect upon them, nor is it often that the giant does something – at least it seems like they have done something here….

WordPress News and Info

Sent in by a listener
Full page patterns are still missing from Word Press theme development – Word Press is working hard to incorporate everything they can into their theme development in the form of blocks – and full page patterns (rather than the label template) are in the works and there are basic versions of Page Patterns already in block form.
Tips Tuesday with MayAnna – This week includes SEO testing and agency bot crawls, similarities between cPanel and Interworx, FLoC Testing phase 1 completed, and more!
Google Lighthouse – Now introducing the ability to run this directly from SmarCrawl’s dashboard! There is a great beginners guide if this is the first you are hearing of this in this link, and a great explanation on why this is big news for Google.
Elementor 3.3 is out! – And they are introducing Full Website Kits, Kits Library, Colour Sampler, and Radical Performance Improvements. There are a few other things tucked away in this newest release that are exciting as well – like the ability to only load what you actually use! Pretty nifty!
DuckDuckGo readies feature to strip trackers from email – This seems like an intriguing idea – you create an email, and emails are sent to that, where they are stripped of trackers, then forwarded onto your regular email. Neat!
