Hacked, but Fixed

Short Version

There was an issue with dbmini.us that was causing pop-up ads and redirects. I have corrected this. Apologies for the trouble!

Nerd Version

From what I can tell, this was done via FTP. Just in case, I went ahead and did the following:

  • Updated the main FTP password for the site. There is only 1 FTP user, so no other user accounts were comprimised
  • Updated the WordPress password.
  • Changed themes. Now the same as DonBurnside.com.
  • Reinstalled WordPress.
  • Did a double, triple check of all files to make sure the offending code was removed and all files that were left by the attack also removed.

Again, I apologize for any issues that might have caused and hope this will not be a problem in the future here or at any of my other sites (which have also been checked).

Regular service shall resume shortly.

Speak your mind
