Russian hackers mounted an attack on this blog. Hackers target personal blogs for several reasons:
- personal blogs are poorly protected
- load malware to attack readers
- launch attacks from a compromised blog
The Russian attack was unrelenting for 3 days. It was probably a hacker bot designed to cycle through all possible permutations of passwords. Happily, as the attacks had not ceased by the time I took further security precautions, this blog has not yet been compromised.
In any case, if readers note that this blog redirects you to pornography or other advertisements, please drop me a note to let me know. There should be ZERO advertisements on this blog and NONE of the blogposts are paid advertisements of any sort.
