Threat of Running External (third party) JavaScripts on your website

Up to now, it is very common to use Java Scripts on the websites to run various applications or features which can't be hosted on your server. Among bloggers, the usage of Java Scripts is very common because they allow them to add many good features to their blogs so that readers of the blog can have a good experience. Therefore, most of the bloggers' user many external Java Script codes developed by external developers to add extra features to their blogs and these codes starts with tag < script> and ends with < /script>. Even Google Adsense ads are shown on the blogs with the help of similar Java Scripts. 


Why Java Scripts gained so popularity? 

Java Scripts become popular in the last decade because they allow web owners to host a file somewhere else and run it on another site by adding a simple one or two line code.

Why women are still not safe in India?

India has grown in many sectors and we are slowly moving towards development in all walks of life. Education and awareness level among the people has increased many times in recent past. Therefore, today we can hope for a better and safer surrounding for everyone in India including women. But sadly that is not true in India because our track record in women safety is very poor. Crimes against women are so common that we constantly hear such news where a woman is targeted for being a female. 

The Recent case of stalking from Chandigarh is another reminder that women are not safe even in the safest city in India. This case is about Varnika Kunda, a girl from Chandigarh, who was returning home alone late night in her car when she was chased and harassed by two men who even tried to abduct her. However, it was her presence of mind that she called police immediately and kept driving her car. The sad thing is that the one accused in Vikas Barala, son of a strong BJP leader Subhash Balra.

Increasing trend of Private Schools in India

In India, commercialisation of education has increased many times; therefore, the numbers of private schools have increased rapidly. The main reason behind this increase is a poor performance by government schools and fast catching concept of English medium school. 

Most of the middle and lower class families see good education as the only solution to make a good future for their children because they themselves blame their illiteracy and non-ability to speak English as the main reason behind their poverty. Therefore, they don't want the same thing happens to their children too so they spent hard earned money on the child education and sometimes, this money is as high as 60% of their total income. 



So, you can see yourself how people are ready to do anything to provide good education to their children. To exploit this opportunity many private schools have come into play and they charge very high school fees. There are many private schools in India where the monthly school fee is abo…

Moving sites From Http to Https (Need of the hour)

Last week three of my websites come under a cyber attack and started redirecting people to spammy websites. Things come to my notice within few hours and I took all my sites down as a precautionary measure. After proper inspection of the site code, I found that this was caused an external third party Javascript, which I added to make it easy for users to share my site content on social media. So, I immediately removed the code causing this problem from my sites and even decided to remove many of such other external codes to make my sites more secure and safe for readers.

I decided to took it further and shifted all my domains to a secure server so that they can remain secure in the challenging cyber world. Now all my domains and sites are served over the https and it doesn't allow others to steal the user's data or harm users. Initially, https sites were developed for the sites where financial transaction take place; however, due to the ever increasing cyber attacks, it has b…
