I’ve Been Hacked!

hacked websiteLast night I discovered one of my websites was hacked.  And I am MAD.  MAD MAD MAD.  I don’t know how it happened or when, but right in the middle of my sidebar were three HIDDEN links to other websites.  And they were Topic Related websites.

When I discovered this, I had two Cosmopolitans under my belt and it was about 2 in the morning.  After removing the hidden links and changing my server password, I went to one of the sites and sent a furious, alcohol induced email.

And I’m sure they are absolutely shaking in their boots now.  <not>  But it made me feel better.  Well… a little better.

For me, this was worse than receiving blogging spam.  Technically, someone snuck into my house while I was sleeping and wrote all over my walls.  But they did it with invisible ink, so now I have to worry about the fact that I just might have missed a wall somewhere.  And that The Mighty Google will see this wall and ban me for having a spammy site.  I wasn’t just burglarized, I was RAPED.

Even worse?  The site is a fertility site that looks completely white hat to the common internet user.  Little do these potential parents know that the site they are looking at is run by slimy and disgusting people who have no morals whatsoever.  And THESE people are going to help them conceive?  Unbelievable.

It just goes to show that you can’t trust ANYBODY.  What a wonderful Christmas-like spirit this has put me in.  <sigh>

Have you ever been hacked, burglarized or had something stolen from you?
