So a little while ago I got some notification that my notesin9.com WordPress site was hacked. I reached out to my host – dreamhost about it and just got back an automated message. Rather disappointing to be honest. The fact is I don’t know WordPress much at all. I went to dreamhost because of their “easy 1 step install”. Sure I could learn more I guess but I just don’t have the time. I’m happy to be able to post and embed videos quite honestly.
I did ftp into my site and deleted the files highlighted below because they were clearly not supposed to be there, but I don’t know if that’s enough or what I should do to prevent this in the future.
I’d appreciate any help or advice on this! Feel free to comment, email, skype, twit, facebook, call, smoke signal or whatever….
P.S. Big thanks to Stephanie for reminding me about this problem!!! I had kinda forgot about it due to the speed of life going on.
