The upgrade of the blog software was successfully completed with the help of Dennis at Deerfield Hosting. This should put a stop to the attack on my Web host’s database, that occurred through a security hole in the out-dated blogging software I was still using.
It will take me a bit longer to change the appearance back to the old appearance. Please bear with more for a couple of days until I have the time to take care of that finicky project.
And for those of you who are bloggers, let my unplesant experience be a lesson to us all: Update your software regularly! Back up your entire site regularly! For the past two months, I had been meaning to upgrade, I had been meaning to back up the site — it was not pleasant to be forced into it because of a malicious attack.
