Apparently, even though I upgraded my wordpress install to avoid the vulnerability found last Oct/Nov, I got ‘hacked’ all the same.
I probably just got caught up in some type of all encompassing vuln scan (like a dolphin caught in a tuna net).
Anyway, things appear to be back to normal now and things are little tighter around the ship.
In fact, this event may trigger a switch to an entirely different framework. Something custom that cannot be compromised as part of some automated attack.
Stay tuned for more!
