Wordpress Sacked

Submitted by Ray on Mon, 09/29/2008 - 12:10

For a while now I have been running this site using Wordpress as the main CMS. For the last few weeks I have been dealing with the site getting hacked 3 or 4 times a week. Regardless of the security tweaks that I tried to implement to stop this, it was still happening regularly.

Quite why it was possible to change many of my files that should have been protected I do not know, possibly due to a bad plug-in, but I cannot be sure. So by Friday morning I had had enough and it was time for a drastic change, I had now been using Wordpress for a while and I feel that I have tried to get the best out of it, yet it has failed me on numerous occasions.

Hello Wordpress world!

Whoooaaaahhh so this is the merry ride that is Wordpress. For those that know, and those that dont, as a wee experiment I am running this site now on Wordress 2.5, brought to you by Automattic and Happy Cog Studios.

Lately I have been battling against the spammers on this blog, I was doing quite well but then a while back I closed the comments to allow me to make some changes. Yesterday I re-opened comments on all blog posts, today I have over 50 spam comments attached to the first blog post.
