Will attend. Registration - I went to that page, entered my details, clicked on "register" - there was no confirmation, the page just redirected to x-cart.com front page. I have no idea if I am registered now or not. You may want to look into this and provide confirmation page. There is an email send though...

I had the same ugly redirect to home page experience.

I did receive an email confirmation though.

clickwebinar.com should have a "successful registration page", but they don't. Sloppy.

I'll also do my best to attend, however due to the time difference will this be recorded and available later at all?

So no comments on the webinar yet?

I attended. Not sure if there were any issue with others connecting, this time I had no problem with this. But the sound was kinda distorted at times and even went off couple times.

Couldn't hep but notice that the speaker took some time (maybe like 7-8 minutes) to advertise the services they do instead of talking about web security (maybe that was part of the deal with QT).

One thing he mentined - avoid using IE7/8 (not to mention 6) - I am all for that but you have to consider many corporate networks still using IE6 ?! yes, and many will be on IE 7/8 for years to come...

Other than that the webinar covered many things that everyone will say - yes I know this, I am doing it, I am aware of all this... yet we get many sites hacked every day and many XC stores still using "master" as admin login with some very simple password...

Overall I think everyone should reference this webinar and keep it as short checklist what to do (not) when comes to securing their website the best they can
