WAS HACKED

Yep that is correct. Hacked.
The forum I ran in 2006 and 2007 for International Webloggers day was dorment and in a hidden page on my site.
A bot got into the forum and infiltrated it.
OIY!

The gal from my host said that it was nasty porn.
She had shut it down immediately when that happened.

Thank goodness it was a dorment page, that could have been a disaster.

Alex told me that he had gotten notice that the forum service we used had an older version cracked and didnt even think I might still have the dorment page on.

So I learned something today. Delete the dorment stuff! It could be the detriment to your web site.
I only had 15 days to respond or lose everything forever. During vacation one could be away from computer or email for over 15 days. (Lynn is fanning herself over her very close call)
