Yep, it happened.
I’ve had web sites up for at least 25 years, and I’ve never had a site hacked. In fact I’ve never had anything hacked. Not a PC, not an account, not a social media page, nothing. Until now.
Dianne discovered the problem a couple of days ago, and it appeared to have happened perhaps 4 days before she spotted it. I got in touch with my web host, and they were on it within a couple of hours, and were able to restore most of it to working order.
But they also found and removed some malicious code, and warned that there may be some issues with the database, so I should be cautious.
I take your safety and security very seriously, so to be safe I killed the database, all of the web site – content, menus, all of it, and decided to start over with some new security measures in place.
So hang in there, I will be back!
