The other day I received an interesting call from my Dad. He was having a trouble opening secured PDFs. The problem was, he had so many that it became difficult for him to remember passwords for all of them. He needed a way to be able to view the PDFs without password. I did warn him of potential consequences of saving secured PDFs without password. However, it was also an interesting problem to solve.
Turns out, the answer was simple. All I had to do was open a secured PDF and print it to a file (Linux) or print it with a PDF printer (Windows). Once the file was printed as PDF, it no longer required a password. Poof!
The print to PDF option is default in most operating systems these days. However, for older operating systems like Windows XP, there are free drivers available that would add a PDF printer to the system. Personally I think that paying for these drivers is an overkill but if the free drivers are not meeting your requirements then go ahead.
Last evening one of our client’s website faced the dreaded White Screen of Death. Upon investigation we found out that the error was caused by one of the plugins, called WP Statistics. Apparently, the issue cropped up after the recent update of either the plugin or WordPress. Few other users have also reported the same error.
The error states: Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /…/wp-content/plugins/wp-statistics/includes/functions/parse-user-agent.php on line 123
We have notified the author of the plugin of the error. If you’re facing the same error keep a watch on this thread for further updates on the error.
Given the growing importance of information and data for organizations, worldwide, one would think that it’s protectors would be given sufficient power, if not the proverbial free-hand, to implement necessary security measures. We say this because Information Security professionals already have a humongous task of fighting and protecting the organization’s information assets against plethora of threats. Moreover, the nature of the field is such that they have to keep themselves updated with latest trends, technologies, certifications etc. Does it, then, justify to pile on the burden of convincing the Senior Management and Board of Directors (who are already aware of these issues and understand their importance) for implementing new security measures? Does it?

It was in 2009 that we, a bunch of college students, decided to work together on a project for their Software Engineering class. This project ended up going beyond the confines of a classroom environment and developing into ElliteDevs.
