Wordpress Site Security

Lesson Learned (Security First)

by The Boss Gimp

After a trying bout of installing a new site it appears that I am back up. I still have a ways to go before I'm official at 100%(ish) so I'm slowing getting started.

It appears that the database was hacked and a redirection injection was inserted into every post and page. I was inactive for long enough for all of my good backups to be overwritten so I'm having to start over from scratch.

I changed my password to the maximum length and used a random generator with a password that actually makes my glad that cut and paste is actually a thing.

You always think you're secureā€¦. until proven to be not.
