Hacker attack

May 6th, 2010 · 1 Comment · tools

Some time last month, my site was hacked by some imbecils for some nefarious botnet malfesance. To add insult to injury, the attack was apparently coming from Russia. Probably some dropout from my old high school in Moscow, with IQ too low to become an oligarch and too high to get accepted into KGB (or whatever they call themselves these days). Google Webmaster Central helpfully flagged the site as malware,  but neglected to notify me that it did. I could not even access the site admin panel from FireFox, had to go use  a computer with IE which was very nonchalant about allowing me access to  malware-infested site. Ughh. I had to rebuild the entire site (and put it on automatic backup).
