Laid low! was laid low by a hacker attack today. It must have happened some time between last evening and this morning. As you can see, we’re back on our feet, so looks like all’s well that ends well.

There were thousands of files that had been added to the site, which I managed to get rid of (I think). Fortunately, looks like the core files and the database weren’t injured.

This is a good time to chant the backup mantra — no better way to be prepared for the worst than with a back up at the ready.

  2. oooh, Thank heavens Writeside has bounced back. BTW, is there the seed on a new fantasy in this incident? you know, conspiracies, esoteric and not necessarily hostile aliens, the artist high up in her ivory tower, mechanical birds spying from the sky… leave it to you. you can think up great stuff.

    1. Ooh good idea. Though feel free to pinch it first. 😉
