DV Hardware back up and running

As I already posted earlier today DV Hardware was hacked today. The hacker managed to upload a PHP file to my server and ran some commands to completely delete all the files on my webspace. Fortunately my webhost takes daily backups, I contacted them and they were very helpful. They first uploaded a backup of all the files and I then patched the hole.

Total downtime: about 2.5 hours 🙁 . This incident reminded me that it’s time to give DV Hardware a complete overhaul, not only the ageing layout but also the technical backend needs some updating.

Oh and by the way, happy birthday America! I hope all my U.S. readers had a great Fourth of July.

Fourth of July
