Someone hacked my site. I have no time to type right now, but I found code in one of my backend files that points to a blogger homepage. I want to hunt this down and wreak some vengeance, but more importantly, I want to figure out how to stop it from happening again. ARGH!!! Here is someone else that has had the same thing happen – only one person on the whole rest of the INTERNET? I think I have to look a bit harder.

Am very glad that this damage isn’t permanent, but am going to do a backup right now so I don’t have to relive the past hour fruitlessly searching for an unhacked copy of the file…. GRRRR.


Winter weekend


Same principle, but a lengthy leap


  1. Let me know if you want a hand – this is what I do for a living after all. 🙂

    Ha! Be careful – I may inundate you with pleas! I have found a good site that, when I get a bit of time, I am going to run through the suggestions there:
    I have changed my login password using this as well…
    I have you on STANDBY!! 🙂

  3. I am sure I don’t have to tell you that upgrading WordPress is important too – the 2.8.2 release fixes a security vulnerability. The WP Security Scan tool is also good.

    Hi, does that hack include this one: http://www.miaowthecat.com/sd/
    This has been there for over a year – I found it by backtracking from the Clouds site.

    Ohhh. Gavin, thank you for pointing that one out! Had no idea 🙁
    That SUCKS. OK, I obviously need some geek help on this one.
