We dedicate these security-focused point release updates to the world’s first hacker

In 1903, the world’s first reported hacker, magician and inventor Nevil Maskelyne disrupted John Ambrose Fleming’s public demonstration of Guglielmo Marconi’s purportedly secure wireless telegraphy technology, sending insulting Morse code messages through the auditorium’s projector.

Since this time, hackers have been looking to exploit technology loopholes, for fun, profit and even ill will.   We here at VersionOne take security seriously and that’s why in this week’s point release to Winter ’14, Spring ’14 and Summer ’14 releases we have plugged a low-risk vulnerability to prevent hackers from invoking any petty nuisance into our product.  Here’s to safe and happy computing!

About Justin Zack

Unofficially known as “JZ” here @versionone, Justin Zack likes to pick things up, put them in stacks, and help to connect dots. He has a history of working with humans that enjoy building things and he occasionally makes his own stuff when allowed. Justin’s vision is to make the world around him work better so that others can be more productive, creative and free to accomplish their goals. In short, simplify work for others. Justin does this by finding, sharing, and creating principles, patterns, and practices that make others more effective and ultimately helping people make their ideas happen. During off hours, Justin spends time chasing his kids, loving his wife, and running to clear his head. Every now and then he gets a wild hair and jumps on a skateboard to relive the glory days.
