We’re back in action, just

As some of you may have noticed, last100 has been dormant of late and even off-line for a few weeks. The truth is that other blogging and work commitments have kept me very busy recently but more serious, the site was hacked.

Badly.

Malware was installed through a back door exploit and I had to pull the site to protect readers. It also got us penalised by Google and various malware blockers, which has set the site back considerably in terms of readership, hopefully not for too long though.

After a complete re-install of WordPress, the software used to power the site, and other security work, we’re back. And, I hope to start writing here again.

(On a happier note, I’ve made a couple of tech purchases that I want to share with you all soon)

    Yes, welcome back!

    Bad news about the hacking. How did it happen? A problem in WordPress?

      Hard to tell what caused the exploit. Could be our host or WordPress, but it’s the third time unlucky.
