Site Hacked?

To the idiot who sent a message this morning stating that all the WebLaird site databases had been hacked and he would damage the WebLaird’s reputation if a ransom was not paid…

There exists only one database; it contains nothing more than the information you can read throughout this site. Nothing more, nothing less. The only hidden information is the login of the one single site administrator account – which is unique, therefore of no use elsewhere.

The moral of the story:

Site administrators, do ensure you are using protective measures to avoid hacking of your sites but at the same time, if you do receive such threats, make sure you analyse them for accuracy – ninety-nine times out of a hundred, they are absolute rubbish and the rest of the time they might alert you to a possible hole in your security but will rarely have actually breached it…
