Visitor Tracker Malware Alert!
A large number of WordPress sites have been compromised with the “visitorTracker_isMob” malware code. This campaign started Sept 1st, but only in the last few days have we started to see it gain traction; really affecting a large number of sites. As of this recording there are over 6 million sites infected with this Malware. What this site does is open up an iFrame to redirect all their visitors to a Nuclear Exploit Kit landing page. These landing pages will try a wide variety of available browser exploits to infect the computers of unsuspecting visitors. Read more on the Securi Blog.

PCF Halloween Countdown
The lowdown:
A simple fun plugin to share the joy that Halloween is coming. Use a short code to palce it on your site and away you go. You need to add some custom css to pretty it up so a bit more work that I had hoped.
Rating 3 Dragons
WP Featured Screenshot
The Lowdown:
This is a very useful plugin if you need to capture screen shots of website and add them to your posts. Simply add the plugin then when you go to add new media use the screenshot link to grab a screenshot. very nice works well

simply share links using bubbles
The Lowdown:
Add some interesting bubbles to your site sharing links and other information the free version is pretty nice and interesting. If you want more tweaks to it you need to go pro for only $9. All in all pretty nice

Replace Default Words
This plugin helps you replace words in WordPress core, themes and plugins. This means you can change “Posts” to “Articles” or whatever you want. Good for dumbing things down for a client.

Site Icon Extended
This plugin takes the new Site Icon feature in WordPress 4.3 even further. New extended features include adding more icon formats for improved cross-browser compatibility. This includes adding more icon sizes for the default icon and Apple Touch Icon to better support different resolutions, generation of an .ico file to use for the general shortcut icon. It also generates a browserconfig.xml file to support Windows 8.1 and adds a Customizer field to specify an icon background color used by some Windows devices.
