It’s late at night, and my cell phone rings. Except my cell phone is an attachment for my Handspring Visor, so when it rings it just sounds like the alarm is going off – so I ignore it. Then the home phone rings, and it’s PhotoMatt, my knight in shining armor, calling to let me know that my site has been hacked.
Hackers suck. Even more than people that suggest you should just steal blog designs. (Sarah, steal my design and I’ll be at your doorstep ready to go carnival freak crazy on your ass. I’ll claw your eyes out. Probably with a spork.)
Fortunately, for my sites using MT, all that I needed to do was a quick and easy save of my latest post – that rebuilt the index page and all was well again in the world. The lazy hackers didn’t go any deeper than the index.html or index.phpl pages of sites – but they seem to have hit ALL of those pages on one server, making me wonder if it was a virus, worm, or trojan horse of some sort.
So, I’ve got the techno gurus researching what happened, and as soon as I know more I’ll share – but in the meantime, if it has happened to you too, rebuild your index page and you should be fine. If you have other pages you need restored and you host with Blogomania, send in a request to support and we’ll hook you up.
