Site Hacked

The blog was hacked this morning  causing visitors coming to the main page (but not individual posts) to see a page with an anti-America and anti-Isreal message. I’ve tracked the problem to the theme files. For the moment, until I have time to either fix the theme or install another, I have reverted to the basic WordPress theme. Many of the features normally present on the blog will temporarily be down until I have time to  work on this further.

Update: I have loaded another theme which I had downloaded in the past to at least restore much of the old function. Later I’ll decide upon adjusting this one further, reinstalling the old theme, or going to a new theme.

Update II: Fixed the theme and restored it for now.

    Were you able to find out how they hacked you?  Would you recommend any security precautions for your fellow bloggers?

    Yes and yes, but I don’t want to post specifics here to tip off the hackers as to which added security precautions are currently in place. I’ll get back to you by email. (I’m pretty busy right now so it won’t be until later tonight or tomorrow).
