BlogForArizona returns to health

By Michael Bryan

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.

Best Regards,

Michael Bryan and the BlogForArizona crew

    • Hey, where have you been?

    • For Sure Not Tom

      Jake?

      • You were right about the blacklisting.

      • For Sure Not Tom,
        I can’t figure out what is going on with this blog.

        I replied to you maybe 5 or 6 times on Cartoon of the Week yesterday and on this post. All of those comments go into cyberspace as “Liza” or awaiting moderation if I change the name.

        Then I post the YouTube link to “Bye Bye Bye” and it posts successfully.

        So is this incomplete blacklisting or some other problem?

        And I think “censored” is the original, not Jake.

        It would be interesting if they are blacklisting people after years and years of tolerating rightwing trolls.

        Well, it’s their blog.
