site hacked – repaired.

Sometime Tuesday 7/28/15 this site was hacked, seemingly random files were altered in such a way that created links to a site in Russia. The affected files were re-installed by the end of the day on 7/29/15, resolving the issue for now. It is not clear yet how both this site and another WordPress based site I manage were both hacked. The type of hack appears to be perpetrated specifically against WordPress based sites and has been occurring to others this year.

I apologize for the site being down from 8/3/2015 through 8/8/2015, fixing the malicious code injections both within this site and another wordpress blog under the same hosting account was more complex than was apparent at first.  Additional scans are now in place to detect any potential issues, passwords have been changed, and inactive users removed.
