HackMyCF Adds SSL/TLS Scanner [+]
ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 5/27/15 4:00 PM | ColdFusion, Web
I'm pleased to announce a feature of HackMyCF that I've been excited about for a while: SSL / TLS Scanning. If you stay up to date with security news you know that there have been a large number of vulnerabilities or weaknesses discovered in SSL or TLS protocols and implementations. For example, we have LogJam, Heartbleed, POODLE, CRIME, BEAST, and those are just the ones with cool names :) While

Best Voice Recognition Fail(?) Ever… [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 5/27/15 12:00 PM | Misc
So yesterday I flew, or, rather, attempted to fly, since apparently the weather forecast was apocalypse and I didn’t now it. I actually made it to Texas, but my flight to Madison was canceled there. American Airlines rang me with a robo call to my Google Voice number, and Google helpfully parsed their audio into text for me: Calling with the flight update this call. Maybe reported. Bye. Yeah unfortunately. Bye. Yeah like 3376. Bye

Episode 37 - California, Lucee, Google Cloud and other things [+]
2 devs from down under | 5/26/15 10:00 PM
Mark has arrived in California, so we spend quite a bit of time talking about his experiences over there (mind you, it’s been three weeks so far). His new job is a Developer Advocate at Google and given Mark’s previous excitement about working with Google Cloud Tech over the last 12-18 months or so, it’s fair to assume that this podcast is not ending up being more of an advertorial than it always has been.When moving to the cloud, cost is an interesting issue — and that comes up a

Deny URL Patterns With FW/1 [+]
Chris Tierney | 5/26/15 9:00 PM | ColdFusion Servers, IIS, Rewrite, Wordpress
Seeing that someone was trying to hit wp-login.php (WordPress login) a few times a minute on one of our servers at CF Webtools we decided to block any PHP requests since this is a ColdFusion server. It wasn’t as easy as I thought. This is a Windows 2008 R2 server running IIS 7.5 and ColdFusion 11. Sample URL: http://www.mysit

A little over a year ago I blogged about my experience working with the Marvel API (Examples of the Marvel API. It’s been a while since I took a look at it and I thought it might be fun to combine the Marvel data with IBM Watson’s Visual Recognition service. I rev

Some CFML code that doesn't work [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 5/25/15 2:27 PM | Adam Presley, Bugs, CFML, Closure, ColdFusion, Lucee, Quiz, Sean Corfield
G'day:I was sitting at Lord's yesterday watching England v NZ (and, um, we'll have no comments about that, thank-you very much), and a sudden thought popped into my head "Adam Presley might've been onto something there... if I leverage that....I wonder if I could get that code down to one statement?"And that of course will mean nothing to anyone.I had been thinking I had better get back to looking at the answers to my "

Important information about Cordova 5 [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 5/25/15 2:00 PM | Development, Mobile, Cordova
In the most recent update to Apache Cordova, there was a rather important change that could really confuse you if you aren’t paying attention. This is exactly the type of thing that I would have warned my readers about, but I mistakenly thought it would not impact most users. I’ll explain later why I screwed that up, but I want to give huge thanks to Nic Raboy and his post,

Lucee seems to mess up boolean expressions (kinda) [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 5/25/15 12:00 PM | Bugs, CFML, Lucee
G'day:Another bloody stumbling block writing this code (see CFML / Lucee: beware of "optional" semi-colons for the first one). This time Lucee's not getting the result of a OR expression right. Seriously. Well: I guess not as right as I'd like it to.I was trying to write a compound sort callback, along these lines:results = [ {factor1

CFML / Lucee: beware of "optional" semi-colons [+]
Adam Cameron's CFML Blog | 5/25/15 8:31 AM | Bugs, CFML, Lucee
G'day:Not what I had in mind writing up today, but as often is the way... the easiest way to find bugs in CFML is it try to use it.Railo (all the way back in 3.1! "RAILO-186", "What's new in Railo 3.1") and then Lucee have made claims that semi-colons are optional in their flavour of CFML. This would b
