Your Steward did sally forth, and the Shades were defeated

Recently, there appears to have been an attack on the site. Dozens of shifty files were secreted in places they had no business being, and other pages were infected with naughty code meant most likely to steal information.

Our site vendor detected the changes, and quickly quarantined the impacted assets, and alerted me to the issue. It took a while, and involved a lot of back and forth with the SFTP server. That aside, we’re back up and running. Yay us. Drop me a note in the comments if you have any questions about the attack.

Cheers

    Does this likely mean that my account was compromised in some way?

      More likely that wordpress is just insecure garbage.
