The following link is to a bog post by Cloudflare – and is a really good writeup covering the severe problems challenging anyone that wants to use secure certificates, and the issues in keeping them secure. Or rather how to keep the CA’s secure end honest.

 

A fascinating read

I just got wildcard certificates working and issued using the acme options in Pfsense – it took q restart and a lot of original fiddling – but I can confirm it’s working.

Slashdot WordPress Now Powers 30% of Websites

WordPress now powers 30 percent of the web, according to data from web technology survey firm W3Techs. From a report: This represents a 5 percentage point increase in nearly two and a half years, after WordPress hit the 25 percent mark in November 2015. It’s worth noting here that this figure relates to the entire Web, regardless of whether a website uses a content management system (CMS) or not. If we’re looking at market share, WordPress actually claims 60.2 percent, up from 58.7 percent in November 2015. By comparison, its nearest CMS rival, Joomla, has seen its usage jump from 2.8 percent to 3.1 percent, while Drupal is up from 2.1 percent to 2.2 percent.

As usual I despair over journalism and statistics – did the journalist ever think about the situation where trampolineparks have a duty to report all injuries and will err on the side of caution, where injuries at home are more likely to be treated at home?

I saw this on the BBC News App and thought you should see it:

Trampoline park injuries ‘more serious’, hospital findsp06062fn.jpgChildren suffered worse injuries at trampoline parks than when using home equipment, a hospital finds.

We previously communicated that we would launch ACMEv2 and wildcard certificate support on February 27th. ACMEv2 and wildcard support is nearly ready but we will be delaying the full launch in order to give our teams more time to complete testing and quality assurance activities. While we work hard to hit deadlines, we are inclined to prioritize a quality release over hitting a deadline.”
