Spammers Suck

Thanks to spammers and other annoying script kiddies…I’ve rebuilt the site to improve on security. Some links may be busted – if so I’m working on it 😉

Thank the script kiddies folks … May they all rot! >:(

UPDATE: Unfortunately the SIP ALG tester had to go thanks to abuse by these loser ‘hackers’ that spread spam and malware via WordPress blogs (wow your mother’s must be proud! If they really ARE proud that you are such scum, it shows what worthlessness your whole family tree must come from…).

Honestly, some fault is mine – despite Ubuntu KB’s stating CHOWN www-data user/group for your Wordpess installations, that is NOT good. What that results in, is idiots uploading php and other files in your themes,plugins, and other folders they enumerate. Once uploaded to your server – they will statically redirect all kinds of traffic (I’ve seen from Russia/France/Ukraine/Germany) through your site. Removing the files is futile as they will re-appear. Once compromised it’s difficult to find out which files are changed (even with tools like Wordfence, though it DOES help). The best solution is reinstall WordPress, and secure every single stinking folder and file with the appropriate permissions. Then GOOD LUCK getting that “Easy functionality” with plugins and themes, because if you’ve secured it right – you can’t automatically install shit…Best option is do installs/updates manually.

So why go back to WordPress? Because I DO really like the overall setup and simplicity. This is a test site for me – nothing major, so I’m not going to custom code a nice site (and rather not have an ugly basic site either lol). This time I read up and spent the appropriate time involved in (hopefully) securing WordPress so losers can’t take advantage of it.
