How to keep Refresh, Georgian Hacker from hacking you?


Short post. Just got one of my blogs hacked. Only one blog and I only lost one post since I do backups. Some people. But only at the blog level because hey, other sites on that account are still active. I am refraining from commenting any more for fear of repercussion.

So its good to do complete database backups with a frequency equal to the frequency of posts. I am starting to wonder about Wordpress now. I used to run a site using PhpNuke that got hacked weekly due to a security issue in it. I am going back to Wordpress there, but will be looking further into Drupal to see if it is more secure.

Just a minor setback. Big enough to possibly put off the post I was going to do today until tomorrow.

No, I am going to comment. Hey, Refresh, if that's your first name, is it fun acting like a juvenile. Well, I didn't think of it. You probably are. Some fourteen year old sitting in a cave screwing with sites that don't matter anyway. Guess what. I was having issues with that installation. Now I can wipe it clean and install my backup. Sorry for your luck. How long were you to fly your flag? A few hours. Well, it's gone now buddy.


Here is the name of the person who owns the domain where his files are hosted:

One of the files was pulled from a .ge domain which I can't find a whois for.

Anyone want to email him, do so here: Refresh_Destroyier@Yahoo.Com

Down to one post lost. Thank god for full feeds and Zimbio.


Figured it out. He snuck in through a Wordpress Forum plugin and he keeps trying it. See the last comment.
