We woke up one morning and found out that one of our sites had been hacked. A red glaring warning sign appeared on Firefox and Google marked it as a dangerous site. This can happen to you. As much as I want to be intimidated by all the code talk I just cannot afford stop and moan about it. I guess it must be a boomer thing. I must keep asking questions and perserve.
I have posted an insightful presentation on WordPress Security that was part of a presentation at a WordPress Conference. Some of you, although you are long time bloggers, may still shy away from this critically needed stuff. DO NOT IGNORE IT!
I am also reviewing a four hour security seminar I took with Cathy Perkins. It must be done in bit sized peices so it is good to stop, do then listen again.
I am not going to say it is easy and I would much rather be at Starbucks with a cup of Latte, at Barnes and Noble, or in the Virgin Islands. But I know what it feels like to have a blog hacked. So I am forcing myself to schedule this task and follow the steps so clearly explained in the Security Teleseminar. I am still trying to figure out how I am going to reward myself. If anyone else out there is doing the same thing and was in Cathy’s class please let me know.
Meanwhile, view the video below. You may not understand all of it, I am still learning also, but listen anyway. Write down your questions and post them after the video onthe WordPress TV site or here where someone smarter than me might answer.
But regardless if you do it your self or hire someone just secure that blog!
