Hackers Really Piss Me Off!!!

I went to my website this morning and instead of seeing the usual posts there was the following message:

“El Pulpo Hacker Strike Again …
Las Malvinas son Argentinas …
See You in Canasvieiras “

That was it, no other changes made. The reason it happened was because I had set the permissions on one file to give world write access, stupid I know. Anyway that hole is now pluged so that should be the end of it but never say never.

I have never understood why a hacker does what he/she does, although there was obviously a political element to the message left. It can’t be much of a challenge to a hacker when someone like myself leaves the door wide open and welcomes them in – where is the excitement in that? It’s not as if it needed a bank of Crays to crack my passwords!
