Some of you (specifically, those using WinTel computers) may have noticed that clicking on a link here at the blog took you to a highly suspicious dialogue box about having to address some bogus security concern. We got hacked and some black-hatted son-of-a-bitch inserted malware into our server.
I’m glad to report that we have resolved the problem and taken steps to make it a great deal harder to do so in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused our readers and please be assured that visiting us is now safe. As far as we can tell the only way that your computer could be compromised is if you believed the rather amatuerish exhortation to visit another site, download software, or call a number for further instructions. Just a general note: don’t ever do such things 🙂
Thanks for patience and support. This incident cost us several hundred dollars and we will soon provide a donation button to help us defray those costs if you feel you would like to pitch in to help cover that expense.
