Firstly, I’ll start by apologising to anyone who visited this site over the past year or more since it was infected by a trojan/virus. Hopefully you were sensible and had adequate anti-virus protection and were not infected.
I thought I’d better give an explanation for why the site had been down for several days…
A couple of weeks ago when I was home alone for a few days (I called it ‘bachelorfest 2011′ but that’s another story) I spent many hours trying to remove the trojan without wiping out a lot of work on my wordpress blogs. It didn’t work, because when I came back on Sunday, the site was infected again.
I was faced with a decision, close down the site or just delete everything and build again from the ground up. Obviously I’ve taken the decision to do the latter.
So I’ve finally got the site live, but there will be content that I’ve lost (such as the images in the post below until I re-upload them). I’m not going to do too much work on the site for a few days (such as a new theme, adsense integration etc) until I get confident that the virus is gone for good.
If you ever come across anything like that on this site again, leave a comment and I’ll look into it.
