So the fun just went on, and it didn’t stop here. >:[ This WP blog wasn’t the ONLY thing that was hacked. Yahoo mail and Facebook were hacked too, and I’m not exactly sure what else. (looks at long, long, long list of sites I have a password for.) These should all be changed. ICK.
If this happens to you, change as many passwords as possible. I’m not going to change every single ONE, such as the cute cat group, but I’m going to change as many as I can. (Amazon and Gmail, for instance.)
If your domain is hosted by Dreamhost, send an email to them, and they will help you.
Do not panic.
Avoid running around in circles and screaming incoherently.
Try this site: All you have to do is remember one password (theirs), and they then keep track of passwords on all your other accounts. (Or almost all– I don’t think that sites like Bank of America are good for this.)
Oh, while we’re on the subject– change your online banking password. If you don’t remember your pin number because you never use it, do not get upset over how long you have to wait in the lobby in order to change this. Bring something to read, or you’ll be stuck with back editions of the Tigard Penny Saver.
So far, it looks like the problem is under control. 🙂 (Finds a lot of wood to knock on.) There will be much more actual content here soon!
