And after one rejection due to Policies, it was approved in the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.itsecuritynews It is actually enough to visit the website on a mobile device and you will see immediately on the top of the page an offer to install the app.

This seems to trigger some automatic mechanisms, which signal Twitter to block my accounts. However, there is a bug in their blocking page. If you try to login into a suspended account, you end up in…
The Internet is telling everyone to switch to HTTPS for various reasons: better security better SEO from the search engines (read: Google) others While I agree with most of the reasons, I think that it is not really necessary for a read-only news portal to have HTTPS. It is no secret transferred, no login, nothing… Just text and links. And Ads… 🙂 So, my hosting provider Strato is giving me a free SSL certificate. After a long thinking and testing, I activated it for ItSecurityNews.info. From now on, you’ll be redirected to the HTTPS://ItSecurityNews.info even if you just type ItSecurityNews.info or http://www.ItSecurityNews.info Let’s see how much visitors this brings … or takes.
