Hello everyone! Pretty hectic week for me and you may have noticed that I was somewhat MIA. Internet connection problems, two of my client’s sites and one of my own, have been hacked. These, among other things, contributed for this lack of inactivity.
That said, I would like to draw your special attention to the TimThumb vulnerability issue. If you have not heard about the problem, and how to fix it, I strongly recommend reading Kim’s recent post, TimThumb WordPress Security Issue. Fixing the TimThumb issue is not as easy as it may seem and it can be very technical. Fortunately, on Kim’s post, she found a WordPress plugin that scans and eliminates the problem in any WordPress powered website. After running the scan, all of my sites but one (this one), were infected, and yes, if you’ve guessed it by now, includes the hacked sites. Do yourself a favor and run a scan of your site, the bugger can be anywhere in disguise. It will keep your site safer and avoid wasting time and effort, if not worst.
