Everything should be back to pretty much normal by Monday morning. Fucking script kiddies. Seriously. Why?

On the plus side, I learned some important stuff about security, ha ha. Shared servers + default Movable Type settings = big hole. Would've been a lot easier to deal with if my hosting company could've given me a backup from Friday. Oh well. Live and learn.

When I logged on saturday morning my computer detected and treat viruses on two seperate occasions. This only happened when I logged on to GloNo. What the dilleeyo with that and should I be concerned?

Sven, as long as your virus catcher caught it, you should be fine. Of course, you'll want to update your virus definitions and run a complete system scan, but you should be doing that regularly already, right?

But yeah, this was a nasty fucking hack. And I caught it pretty quickly, but about a half hour after I spent two hours cleaning everything up, we got hit again by the same fucking thing and I had to do it all over again. I eventually learned where the hole was that was allowing this hack and closed it up. But fuck. What a mess!

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. And hopefully, nothing bad happened to anybody's computers because of this.
