I recently discovered that my blog had become the victim of a hacker’s malicious code. My index.php file got hacked on March 16 which resulted in re-directions of many viewers to a page claiming that my site was “a reported spam site.”
I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone viewing my blog. I use a Mac and had not experienced this myself. Yesterday I was trying to show someone my blog on a PC when I first encountered this situation. It took me about 3 hours this evening to back-up my blog and re-install WordPress 2.7. My understanding is that the hackers may have exploited a security hole in WordPress’s code.
I’ll be keeping a close eye on things from now on. Please let me know if you notice anything unusual.
