My site has been down for a few days due to a “security problem” that I encountered. it seems that some malware showed up on the server and my host disabled the site. It took a bit of ftp’ing to get the offending files removed but we are back on the air.
I can’t say for certain how the bad guys got into the site but it would appear they were specifically targeting sites using WordPress. I was already running a security plugin for WordPress but since the attack I’ve tightened up the parameters considerably. If I inadvertently locked you out, my apologies.
It is interested to watch how many attacks are reported by the security plugin, mostly from locations outside of the US. If you are using WordPress and don’t have a security plugin installed, I highly recommend installing one and locking things down tight.
