Hacked!

Written By: Tuen - Sep• 24•09

Yesterday evening (or early this morning rather), I discovered that this blog had been hacked.¬†After the upgrade, I was checking everything out and discovered I had an invisible ‘admin’ user. This fellow could come in anytime and erase/deface/spam my site at will. And because he was invisible, it was not a straightforward matter of deleting him. In the end, I had to go into the database directly to look for his ID and delete him. I hope that’s the end of that!

Death, pain and suffering to hackers (in that order)!
