WordPress Security
View gist:3379965
WordPress is actually one of the most secure pieces of software available. It powers 17%
of the 1,000,000 most visited websites, so it is being constantly tested both internally
and by hackers. When an issue is discovered, an update is released which you can install
with one click in the dashboard.
The vast majority of hacked WordPress websites are running an out-of-date version of
WordPress. Once WordPress is updated, any vulnerabilities that are patched are now publicly
known, so old versions are vulnerable.
The next most likely source of hacking is your host. If your server isn't secure, it doesn't

JavaScript: Detect IE
View js-detectie
// ----------------------------------------------------------
// A short snippet for detecting versions of IE in JavaScript
// without resorting to user-agent sniffing
// ----------------------------------------------------------
// If you're not in IE (or IE version is less than 5) then:
// ie === undefined
// If you're in IE (>=5) then you can determine which version:
// ie === 7; // IE7
// Thus, to detect IE:
// if (ie) {}
You can’t perform that action at this time.
