      1. Kinda related but not. I was in a mall in the Metro, many years ago, maybe 2nd or 3rd floor. A child had wandered over to the guard rail at the edge of the opening and had gotten his head stuck in between two of the bars, and started screaming.

        The mother was nowhere in sight, so I went over to help (natürlich), and held the kid's head firmly, pulling it out of the bars.

        It all turned out fine, but I can just imagine her showing up screaming What are you doing to my baby!

  1. WordPress hackery:

    Over the past three weeks, a trio of critical zeroday vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins has exposed 160,000 websites to attacks that allow criminal hackers to redirect unwitting visitors to malicious destinations. A self-proclaimed security provider who publicly disclosed the flaws before patches were available played a key role in the debacle, although delays by plugin developers and site administrators in publishing and installing patches have also contributed.

    Over the past week, zeroday vulnerabilities in both the Yuzo Related Posts and Yellow Pencil Visual Theme Customizer WordPress plugins, used by 60,000 and 30,000 websites respectively, have come under attack. Both plugins were removed from the WordPress plugin repository around the time the zeroday posts were published, leaving websites little choice than to remove the plugins. On Friday, Yellow Pencil issued a patch, three days after the vulnerability was disclosed. At the time this post was being reported Yuzo Related Posts remained closed with no patch available.
