Ok so I totally screwed up this site, lost all my old posts and pictures…and yes it is my fault, but I blame Google and WordPress too.
I google my sites randomly, once a month or so and found this site had been hacked. It redirected people to a Viagra site, well shit and double shit. It was in one of my themes. I looked all over but never did find the code that did this. Google even gave me the line #, but even looking at the bare code, it just was NOT visible. I am thinking it was hidden in the lines and lines and lines of code that make up a web site.
This is the only site I use WordPress on, I hand code all the rest and they seem fine.
To all the hackers out there, Fuck you all. It’s not like I have a ton of subscribers, or even make money from this site so it’s just malicious meanness, and down right stupid.
I like coding, and I understand why there are certain hackers that try to bust our chops, check our ins and outs….but come on…it’s just a blog, a few words on my thoughts. No links to Amazon or anything. I make zilch from this and there was just no reason.
So I am up…again, lost five years of assorted posts. I had to uninstall WordPress, check my computers and there reinstall. What a royal pain in the ass.
There is not a lot a person like me can do if someone jerks my chain like this. I am not a hacker, I know base coding for html, I play with it cause its fun. I run my sites through the W3C validation. Yes to me it matters.
