Site breached…

So,

Upon waking up this morning, I discovered that someone had added themselves as an owner to this site on Google Webmaster Tools.

Upon further investigation, I discovered that a file HAD been uploaded as verification. Not only that, but the index.php file had been modified with what could’ve been a backdoor.

The attacker had also uploaded a .htaccess file which provided access to that backdoor (although that wouldn’t have worked as I solely use nginx).

I’ve tried investigating further, but I couldn’t see how they had copied the files… Anyhow, I’ve completely reinstalled wordpress, and I’ll be keeping a close eye out for issues.

Where have all the (good) posts gone‽

You may have viewed this site before, and if so, you’re probably wondering where the posts that were here have gone.

The answer? Into the ether of has-been content.

I migrated my server, but neglected to check whether the backup I thought I had actually existed. Spoiler: It didn’t.

So, starting again from scratch. Oh well!
