If you’ve visited my site over the last few days you might have noticed that something was up – I had been hacked.

I’m diligent about keeping my site up to date and secure, so it was a bit of a head scratcher to say the least. It turns out that the culprit was an old theme that I had installed and never used… but not updated. It seems that even this poses as security risk and allows a point of entry to neer-do-wellers!

The moral is- to do just like your Mum always told you and keep your house clean – uninstall any themes and plugins you’re not using and keep everything up-to-date!

Luckily the damage wasn’t too bad and I’m using to monitor my website – they also cleaned it for me in under an hour. Thumbs up from me.

Happy clicking!
