We recently received an email from #Cloudflare explaining a leak issue. While our sites were not impacted, we wanted to let everyone know of the issue in case you missed the email and use Cloudflare. You should check your email spam folder too, if you use CF.
Dear Cloudflare Customer:
Thursday afternoon, we published a blog post describing a memory leak caused by a serious bug that impacted Cloudflare's systems. If you haven't yet, I encourage you to read that post on the bug:
While we resolved the bug within hours of it being reported to us, there was an ongoing risk that some of our customers' sensitive information could still be available through third party caches, such as the Google search cache.
Over the last week, we've worked with these caches to discover what customers may have had sensitive information exposed and ensure that the caches are purged. We waited to disclose the bug publicly until after these caches could be cleared in order to mitigate the ability of malicious individuals to exploit any exposed data.
In our review of these third party caches, we discovered data that had been exposed from approximately 150 of Cloudflare's customers across our Free, Pro, Business, and Enterprise plans. We have reached out to these customers directly to provide them with a copy of the data that was exposed, help them understand its impact, and help them mitigate that impact.
Fortunately, your domain is not one of the domains where we have discovered exposed data in any third party caches. The bug has been patched so it is no longer leaking data. However, we continue to work with these caches to review their records and help them purge any exposed data we find. If we discover any data leaked about your domains during this search, we will reach out to you directly and provide you full details of what we have found.
To date, we have yet to find any instance of the bug being exploited, but we recommend if you are concerned that you invalidate and reissue any persistent secrets, such as long lived session identifiers, tokens or keys. Due to the nature of the bug, customer SSL keys were not exposed and do not need to be rotated.
Again, if we discover new information that impacts you, we will reach out to you directly. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Co-founder and CEO
You do want to check on this as it is important. Here's an article by PC Mag that helps explain it some too.
Founding phpFox has been such a big change in my life and I am so grateful for the opportunity it gave me and the others on my team for over a decade. I wish I could thank each and every client for giving us this opportunity.
Donna and I will be reaching out to the community so we can start work on developing affordable quality apps based on what the community feels is needed in order to improve phpFox. We will also be taking in custom projects for those looking to create unique features for their community.
Stay tuned for further updates.
I wish all the best to phpFox and would like to thank Donna for creating and providing ScriptTechs to clients and giving me the opportunity to work with her once again.
Maybe you've heard of GIMP and maybe not but it's one of our favorite free programs for images.
We use it for logos, avatars, icons and any sort of image stuff we need to do. As Photoshop is so expensive, this free program that does just about everything that Photoshop does, is a great alternative.
We found that many of the Photoshop tutorials also work for GIMP.
Might want to give it a try next time you need to make or change images.
Our next article in the Starting a Website series is on Site Focus .

We just published another blog at our BryZar site. This one deals with how to choose hosting for your website. We give tips for how to decide whether to use self-hosting or hosted versions (if a script company offers both), how to choose the right host and the right plan for your site.
We hope you find it helpful! Feel free to subscribe to our blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Thanks Data. You can find the product here:
I am cell phoning at this time, so I don't want to get too fancy.
We are revisiting mobile app wrappers. These are tools that let you create mobile apps for your site. They are basic apps and without a lot of the functionality that you would get from purchased, custom mobile apps, however, they should work fine for what most small sites need.
There's a video tutorial here for how to use one of the app tools we'll link below.
The three mobile app wrapper sites he mentioned in that tutorial are:
There are also the ones we listed in this thread at ScriptTechs main site. mobile app wrappers and some of those are used by some mobile app creators that sell for around $400 - 600 or so.
Just remember that you still have to pay Apple and Google their yearly fees.
