Website bombardment and crack of 2009

A now time for a seriously long-winded story my little kitties. It has it’s beginnings, middles, and endings. It’s about how I realized my decrepit WordPress install was not so secure.

Crappy (All) Consuming crack

Dang it! The All Consuming site has been hacked by someone. I was going to login to my account to get the full list of books that I’ve read and update it now I can’t. I haven’t place the javaScript for my books code on my weblog in awhile, but still I wanted to update […]

Computer zombies with a viral load in e-mails

It had my phone number totally wrong! It was an area code I’ve never seen before, 956. It was ten numbers and in the box for my […]

Browser Hijacking sucks

Imagine if you will, just browsing and researching away when all of a sudden a page on a site that you’ve visited before now has something added to it. No folks, I’m not talking about new content. I’m talking about your web browser now has a new toolbar! Yep… …yer browser’s been hijacked! I was […]

Attack of the Amazon trolls

Strange. I wonder if my Amazon.com wishlist has been hacked? For some reason it was showing my birthday as October 8th! That’s stupid. Really stupid. Last time I looked it was correct. Good thing I checked back. I changed it back to December 23rd.
