I’m back online – just about!
For those of you who have been wondering where my site disappeared to, it’s back. Or, at least getting back. Like many of you, I’m sure, a couple of weeks ago I suddenly found myself the target of a malicious attack. Someone managed to hack into this site and start using it for their own purposes.
Since then I’ve been attempting to re-instate it back to where it was. Unfortunately they appear to have deleted all my previous content in the process so I’m starting back from scratch. This time I’m doing all I can to ensure that I have all of the loopholes plugged and daily back-ups of the database to go back to.
This has been a very interesting exercise for me and has demonstrated how easy it is for people to gain access to your site and really screw it up if you are not careful. So much so, that I’m going to create a section on here all about protecting your blog so that other people don’t suffer the same fate.
Tomorrow I’ll update you all on my recent visit to Singapore.
Take care & keep blogging,
