This morning my blog got hacked by someone calling themselves M0µ34d. Luckily I spotted it quickly and managed to remove it quite easily (they had somehow added an ‘index.html’ file which takes precedence over ‘index.php’ on the webserver). I have no idea why I was targeted by these political hackers, I guess they just have some code that hunts down security holes in WordPress and take advantage. Maybe I had better make time to upgrade my installed version of WordPress to the latest release. Fingers crossed that will help. I should also do a new backup of the site and database just in case.
A fellow Flasher/Flexer over at GUYA.NET also spotted the hack very quickly.
Normal service can now resume.
