Well, if any of you tried to visit my website within the last 24 hours or so, you may have noticed that it was temporarily down. This is because it was hacked. A virus was loaded into my server somehow and corrupted my admin area.
Without going into too much boring detail, I will explain to you that I run a WordPress Blog hosted on GoDaddy, which was one of the primary targets of these attackers. I will say that I was ultra disappointed in GoDaddy, for a complete lack of support, passing the buck to WordPress and allowing this attack to happen in the first place. If my site is hosted on their servers, and their servers are attacked, you would think they would take a certain amount of responsibility for it.
What made matters worse, is that I didn’t have a recent backup (Important Note: If you have a website or blog back it up to your local computer regularly), so basically the only way I could fix it was to sift through hundreds of lines of code in order to find the problem and remove it. Hence, that’s why the site was down for 24 hours or so.
I apologize for anyone who tried to visit and came up empty. Some recent posts you may have missed include the last couple UFC 113 videos and some information on the Tapout MMA Fantasy Camp. Check those posts out. I also have some information coming about a few recent events soon.
Oh yeah, I would like to thank the guys at http://sucuri.net/ for providing the malware removal tool. Thanks guys.
