Toruń is clearly emerging as an important place on the start-up map in Poland. Not only the number of technology companies increases, but what's more important, we can see the local entrepreneur scene forming, stimulated by numerous events and organizations. There are strong communities of developers, entrepreneurs, IT-gurus, designers and investors gathering around Mission Torun, Smart Space and Business Link. The ecosystem is forming and it's really, really great to see (and be part of)!

There is one special event in Toruń I would like to invite you to. It's Startup Weekend, on 7-9 November.

Dear Wikidot Users,

on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, the Google research team released details on a new form of attack on the SSL protocol — the one that underlays the secure connections over https://. It's called POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) and it targets CBC ciphers in SSLv3. Is it serious? Yes.

An attacker can perform a man-in-the-middle attack, force a fall-back to SSLv3 (which is an old, almost legacy protocol) and de facto decrypt "secure" client-server transmission. The attacker must however place himself between the client and the server, e.g. acting as a WiFi access point, or gain access to routers or gateways. It's not that uncommon as you think.

The general recommendation is not to use the vulnerable SSLv3 and completely remove it from the supported protocols.

At Wikidot we have already pulled SSLv3 from all our servers — all our load balancers and all standalone web servers. It should not affect anything from the user perspective, but it greatly improves the security. Want to verify? Try this tool and enter your site URL (or just www.wikidot.com).

In August, the Standard Template was officially released and has since then seen some success. While a very good start for general purpose sites, it is now time to start unveiling task-specific applications, starting with…

New design! Hoooray!

Everyone loves great designs especially when it comes to the web. This is why we introduced Bootstrap-compatible layouts a while ago to let you create great wikis with fresh themes. Now it's time to eat our own dog food and use it to refresh our front page, blog and the feedback sites. The account dashboard got a redesign too!

Our new offices are hosted at a newly created business accelerator center BusinessLink. Apart from offering only office space its goal is to "accelerate" companies by providing know-how, business opportunities and support.
