Some Resolution

As most of you are aware, this site was compromised by some malicious code which tried to (and in some cases did) inject a virus onto the machines of those kind enough to visit me here. Again, I can’t apologize enough.

I was very puzzled about how this virus gained access to the site… Furthermore, it showed itself to be smarter than me several times over that weekend, when I thought I had rid the site of it. Well, I finally learned the full explanation. If you’re interested read about it here.

Pretty scary stuff. I wonder if it is the same problem that Balloon-Juice was having a few weeks back.

So, there you have it.

    I was very puzzled about how this virus gained access to the site

    VERY scary when you get a virus w/o downloading anything. My home PC was choked down over the weekend & I was at my wit’s end of how to get my bandwidth/processor back (and I’m somewhat of a professional in these matters!) & the ever-handy Windows Vista ‘rollback’ feature allowed me to return to normal. Nasty, nasty stuff.

    No, you haven’t been inflicted with redundancy, catering to the mob and little more than a recitation of that which is seen on memeorandum & the Daily Dish. :)

    The door was too wide open….

  • Now, that was just cold.
