You may think that, but you'd think differently if your server was hacked and used for DDOS. The inconvenience of chasing up a password is about one hundredth of the inconvenience (and cost) of...

That's actually a very good and neat idea for a short term fix, because it avoids the lengthy timeout when the nameserver can't be contacted (remember, the nameserver used is chosen randomly, so some...

Mobile devices would only be vulnerable to Heartbleed if they run a webserver.

Curious, have any datacentres blocked this at a firewall level?

As the dust has settled, it turns out that for...

At a guess I'd think this could work; the only way to know for sure is to test it.

Would be most grateful, if you do test it, if you could let us know the result here.

While this is a good point, the host also isn't directly responsible for out of date scripts - they simply can't be, unless you are willing to pay thousands per year for server admin; the time...

This is another Basic Auth protection script.

Basic Auth is actually a pretty good idea overall; the webserver looks up the password, so little exposure to PHP server load.

One important point...

You'll need to do quite a bit of study if you want to do this yourself.

Get a professional to do it, it will be cheaper and faster and you'll get a better result. And you'll then learn from what...
