Violation

It’s been a LONG time since I last posted anything on here.

I did think about posting an update a week or so ago but was getting warnings from my ISP that there was something a bit dodgy with kevwalks.co.uk. I didn’t think too much about it until today when I decided that now would be a good time to update the ol’ blog.

I bypassed the warning and instead of being greeted with my blog was informed that I was the six zillionth viewer and had won a brand new iPhone – wow !


After a bit of checking, I deduced that my files had been fiddled with, so I shot off an email to my hosting company and received this back within a few minutes …

So I’ve been violated !

After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, a back up was restored and all was back to (almost) normal. The offending WP File manager has been deleted to prevent that happening again.

As a precaution, I’ll installed a plug-in called Updraft which will automatically backup my WP files to my website file system and Microsoft OneDrive.
