Site Got “Hacked”

February 15, 2017 | By | Add a Comment

So, as usual I wasn’t paying attention to this site, and it got “hacked”. I’d read about the WordPress REST API vulnerability a couple weeks ago and I made a point of updating my various WordPress sites. I completely forgot about this one. Typical. I updated and rolled back the silliness that they injected into the various posts. Seems there’s money in selling Cialis. I’m in the wrong business.

Anyway, looks like the site was being messed with quite a bit over the past few days. Here’s a grab of the various people who vied for the #1 post on the site..

Starts with my ironic “The Only Thing That is Constant is Change” post, and then BALA SNIPER comes in and breaks some stuff. They were obviously the best of the lot, because they were there first. Then s/he/it adds in some actual content. Much betterer!

.. Then it’s Imam’s turn, but it’s OK because s/he/it did their work with LOVE.

.. Next up is chinafans (I’m now firmly a china fan too), closely followed by GHoST61. This guy is cool because he used a lowercase ‘o’ in his name.

.. But wait, don’t count chinafans out of the race just yet! They come back strong with 2 changes. Seems they deeply care about typography and added some paragraph HTML tags in their second edit.

Then it’s Dr.Silnt Hill, followed by SA3D HaCk3D, and then GeNErAL HaCkEr… and finally, Dr.Silnt Hill .. again.

Phew! That’s dedication! These guys really mean business! The putting-pharmacy-ads-on-people’s-websites business must be super competitive!

Anyway, thanks for making me stay up late fixing your mess. You guys are the b3sTest!
