My site and Blog are available again

August 17th, 2005 by Pete

This morning I got an email from Doug Burns and then soon after from Marcel-Jan Krijgsman to let me know that my site had been hacked. In fact in the end the hacker had overwritten the index files for my blogs main entry page and also for the archives page. He (she/they) had also overwritten the same files for my web development blog.

This has meant that the whole site has been down all day whilst the ISP (Uklinux) fixed the issue. It turns out that the hackers had also done the same to many other sites hosted by by ISP when they had compromised the server.

Anyway my site is back.
