Killing RSS

lassiecomics Killing RSS

Well, the RSS spam crisis seems to have passed. We called the web host and after a hold of a mere 45 minutes they ran a clean-up program and found the offending files which had been embedded in the theme folders. Not sure how the original hack occurred, but there are a lot of WordPress vulnerabilities that still exist.

Sorry about that.

    Does this mean that you aren’t going to send me the pills? :-(

    Damn, I’ll just have to read comics instead.

  2. Heidi, You are using an old version of WordPress. You should upgrade to the newest version to take advantage of the latest security updates.

    The fact that people can easily see what version of WP you are suing is a security risk.
