Happy St. Patrick Day/Weekend from Ireland 🍀 🙂

It’s been a quiet week, and this is good, so just 3 items on the agenda this morning.

#1 – Vulnerability: Anti-Malware and Brute-Force Firewall

If you’re running Shield, there wouldn’t be any need to run another security plugin, but just in case you are…

How will I know I’m okay?

If you use ShieldPRO’s automatic upgrader for vulnerable plugins/themes, this will be done automatically for you.
