Salute To The World’s First Reported 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.

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!
