Everything’s under control. Situation Normal.

.

A few hours ago a reader (thank you Ryan) emailed me to let me know that Google has placed a “This site may be compromised” warning beneath the site’s name when it comes up in search results.  Turns out they were right.  I discovered that someone, unbeknownst to be, was able to slip three .php files into the site’s main directory a few days ago.  It looked to me like these files were supposed to add sketchy drug advertisements onto the frontpage.  Thankfully they didn’t work, but Google still picked up on them and flagged the site.  I’ve removed these files and changed passwords and all that jazz.  So that’s the end of Hack Attempt #1.  Everything’s back to the usual and I’ve submitted a revision request to Google to get them to remove the warning.  Hopefully that’ll go through in the next few days.

.

So as you may have picked up on I know enough about HTML, CSS and WordPress to make a very basic site function, but it is not my forté.  So, I’m probably going to look into bringing an extra person on board temporarily (there’s no way I could afford an actual employee right now) to help me get the site up to the standards that it should be at.

.

Anyway, sorry for the brief downtime today while I sorted that mess out.  New foods are coming soon.
