Has SEO Replaced Word-of-Mouth Marketing?

Has SEO replaced word of mouth marketing?
Businesses have long relied on the recommendations of their customers to promote their products or services. The good things that others say about a business often carry more weight than advertising alone, and smart business owners know that word-of-mouth is a powerful force.

Spectre, Meltdown, and Protecting Your Passwords

Protecting passwords from Spectre and Meltdown
Spectre and Meltdown belong to a category of vulnerabilities called “chip hacks.” These affect the processors of computers, phones, and tablets. Both hacks rely on the manipulation of processor operations in order to retrieve sensitive data. Spectre exploits a design flaw by tricking programs to perform unnecessary actions, potentially exposing confidential data. Meanwhile, Meltdown grabs information from the processor that ordinarily would not be accessible. Please note that both of these hacks would require an actual malicious attempt by a hacker. Without the manipulation of the processor’s operations, private information, such as passwords, is relatively safe. However, if we’ve learned anything about security flaws, it’s that someone, somewhere, will make an attempt before a patch can be applied. The potential for your passwords to be exposed is real.
