F***ing bastards must die.

I got hacked today. Every .php and index.html page of my blog was replaced by a single line:

Trustix. Contact? Trustix@hackermail.com

I have no idea who these people are or how they were able to hack into my site. Fortunately no permanent damage was done. It was malicious but not destructive. I’ve contacted my ISP.

  1. Are you running Wordpress?

  2. Textpattern.

    I used to run Wordpress.

  3. They did that to me once. Replaced my index.html with a text like that, years ago. Fortunately the index.html was obsolete, but they didn’t know that :-)

  4. Same crew? How is it accomplished? Or more to the point, how do I keep it from happening again?

  5. Don’t know, really. If I remember it correctly, my problem was that the main folder had read/write rights for everyone.
