Really, there’s only three things to do when you get hacked.
- Fix it.
- Apologize to your readers.
- Make sure it doesn’t happen again.
What people saw when they got the post emailed to them was this (thanks to Sharon for catching it and letting me know).
Now I’ve taken a bunch of time to clean it, secure this and several of my other sites and I’ve started using SiteLock to help prevent this from happening agin. If you’re having trouble reading or commenting, let me know. For the moment we’re praying we’ve got this locked down and that Google continues to not worry. Traffic is still steady.
It’s easy to fall into a lull where you don’t look at your websites and take the time to review their security.
