Just Another HACK (er).

So, I’m sitting there checking out the morning emails and two very bizarre threads show up.  One tells me that my site login has been changed and the other tells me my password has been changed.  Soooooo, I check my blogsite.

HACKED.  Very nice.

You have to wonder what purpose is served by these type of immature attacks.

Here’s what happened:  during my daily site admin early this week, I took the opportunity to upgrade my wordpress software as recommended by the program.  Well, there was some kind of exploit written in to the code and voila.   The site was taken over and the user was redirected to some punk’s homepage.

After spending the better part of the day working it out, everything was good last night.  At least I thought it was.

But Nooooooooo.  This morning, the site was GONE.  No one knows what happened, but files were missing, so no site.

You have to be kidding me.

After restoring all the files with the backup, we’re good to go.  But that brings up the point:   Don’t these people have anything else to do?
