We can all thank foureleven’s husband, who in addition to being an excellent Harpy consort in many other ways, used his professional IT know-how to remove the trojan horse and other bugs that were fucking things up the last couple weeks. It took a pretty considerable investment of his time and we are SRSLY grateful. He will be rewarded with good karma, much love from on-line feminists everywhere, and some home-baked cookies.
Update by Foureleven: Devout reader Alison noticed the security issue briefly returned today. After a non-stressful call with Bluehost, our domain provider, we learned our site was the victim of a code injection, specifically designed to attack WordPress blogs, that installed malware whenever someone visited the site. (I had to Wikipedia code injection because I had never heard the term before.) Apparently, this has been happening to a number of other blogs as well because WordPress released a new security update today, designed to prevent these types of attacks from happening in the future. If you use WordPress, take note that they are urging all users to update to the 3.1.4. I wish I could give the creators of SQL injections an angry look of disdain, but I’ll just take comfort in the fact that both Bluehost and WordPress are on top of things.
