Hi guys. Just wanted to let y’all know that we’re back online after spending roughly 24h down due to a hacker attack.
Sometime in the morning of Tursday, January 19th, we got linked to on Digg.com. Aside from the wonderful 30,000 or so new visitors, we got something else: a hacker. Someone found a vulnerability on the site, and pretty much wiped us out for a day. I’m not saying the hacker came from the Digg community, as we get plenty of non-Digg traffic anyway.
We’re back thanks to the good work of the guys at Websavers. And to the wonders of backups.
Anyway, back on Monday.
