Botnet Effects

posted in: Blogging, Personal | 0

Sorry for the downtime yesterday, and for not being able to explain it until now. It appears that there is a pretty significant botnet attack being directed against WordPress sites, and all of the brute force login attempts were making sites unresponsive.

In order to get the sites back online my host blocked access to the login page. That was great for getting the site online, not so good for me wanting to post any updates, since no one could login.

The hosting company has been great though, and devised a workaround where I’m logging into the site using a renamed login page. Depending on what this might break, I might just consider telling them to leave it this way.

Thanks for getting me back in Jodohost!
