Hacked. Again.

I was out beveraging yesterday with special guests (more on that in another post), when Ms. Karen let me know via Facebook that my blog had been hacked.

Again.

Well crap.

Again.

Luckily I have the ability to FTP into my webserver from my iPhone, so I put my blog in maintenance mode so any visitor would at least be greeted with a message of my choice other than “This site has been HACKED”.

When I awoke this morning, I killed a couple of plugins that I think potentially could have allowed the hackers in, then restored my blog from a clean backup. I guess time will tell if those plugins were the door in. If I get hacked again, that is.

Damn script kiddies.

Until next time...

  1. This is part of a message I got when I logged in to GwG the other day:

    erikrubright is briefly unavailable for maintenance.

    I thought, I wonder if he’s up on the rack getting a lube job; now I know you were repairing from being hacked. I HATE when that happens–hope you’ve got some good barriers in place.
