WordCamp Philippines 2009 early registration begins

July 14, 2009 | No Comments Yet

WordCamp Philippines is less 2 months away and registration is now open. The earlier you pay, the less you spend.

Right now it only costs Php500 or $12 for a ticket, which includes lunch and freebies. This rate lasts only until August 8. Unfortunately they only accept PayPal, but I expect that to change pretty soon.

Also watch out for t-shirts and stickers that will be sold online. Can’t wait for the e-store to come back!

WordPress 2.6.2

September 9, 2008 | No Comments Yet

WordPress 2.6.2 is a security release which tackles problems with SQL Column Truncation and mt_rand().

Since WordPress 2.6.1 was an optional update—first time in the history of WordPress—is WP 2.6.2 the same way? Here’s the answer:

If you allow open registration on your blog, you should definitely upgrade. With open registration enabled, it is possible in WordPress versions 2.6.1 and earlier to craft a username such that it will allow resetting another user’s password to a randomly generated password.

The dev blog also notes that this vulnerability is also applicable to other PHP-based applications.

Aside from security fixes, WP 2.6.2 contains a number of bug fixes as well.

Download WordPress 2.6.2 now.
