Need a Fix of Security Issues and Bugs Related to ProPakistani.PK

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

As written previously About ProPakistani.PK SMS Service to get the issue fixed related to late delivery of messages sent by ProPakistani. I am a fan of this site and keep visiting it to observe all the new happenings on this blog. On this post Aamir responded to me and resolved the issue as quickly as one could imagine.

Whether it is related to replacement of gadgets or placement of ads on different places on the site I love it all. I also keep reporting issue to Aamir Attaa personally but sometimes I like to go public to make things social with other users as well so that visitors can also know what I have spent enough time to learn about. These are facts behind how ProPakistani website has become attractive and that’s why we love its appealing look that makes us a regular user of this website. 

Above all what I want is the security of ProPakistani to save it from hackers and other relevant people who might broke into it due to the bugs and issues I have mentioned below. I think if I am not going to reveal it, they might not know about it. This is us users who see these issues and I consider it my duty to inform them. They have done a great job over the recent years and all members of it Pro Pakistanis as they write.

Today I have observed that ProPakistani is hosted on WordPress that makes it easy enough to customize things on the site. However also found some bugs and issues which needs to get fixed. Out of no way the dashboard of WordPress started appearing on my chrome page while I was reading one of ProPakistani article today tilted “Telenor Posts 11% Revenue Growth in Q3 2012”

I have pasted the screenshots below so that you can take a look at and share your views what exactly happened. 

Previously I have also been looking to see the stats of the site on daily basis so that I can have an idea about how and where is all the traffic coming from on ProPakistani. Being a non-technical on this stuff, I look forward to learn this from Aamir and I am wondering how come thousands of comments are pending for moderation. I think they are spam comments.

Focus in the header bar and look for yourself:

    1. Aamir what about the 20 thousand something comments.

      Delete
    2. Those 20,000 plus comments are boys and girls sharing their numbers, emails, fraud internet schemes, using abusive language and so on....

      This isn't spam, legitimate but useless comments.

    4. I see it too. It really pose a risk for this site. I thought I could login into it but when i clicked on admin page it took me to wordpress login page. Mahfooz you are right about security concerns someone might grab the important info of propakistani due to this bug Aamir should sue the service provider for this.

  9. Hello look at the screen shot attached where Aamir Attaa himself appreciated Mahfooz for seting up this beautiful blog. If he had stole something from his blog then why would he write about issues related to ProPakistani to grab Aamir's attention. He would have been hiding from him instead but as per my opinion Mahfooz is the only one found reporting issues related to ProPakistani. I appreciate Mahfooz also he is doing a great job. I like this blog very much.

  13. I have already mentioned it in my post several times that I am inspired by Aamir. I like his website and look forward to implement things on my blog with the techs and hacks which gives me a great way to learn. I have not copied anything from his blog I have implemented it all myself. If you are webmaster you should know that this is not possible and easy to implement things that are simply available in WordPress by simple clicks and hardly possible to show them on blogger. Thanks for the comment anyways.
