It wasn’t directed at me. It was just some script that someone wrote to target old versions of WordPress. They call it tagging, and it is the internet equivalent of spray painting a picture of a male body part on a school building. It is common and usually harmless, but boy is it annoying.
Now, if I had an online bank and they hacked in to get account numbers, that would be different. If I had some website which I bragged was unhackable, then I would understand some tagger going in and knocking me off my high-horse. If I was a member of a rival hacker gang or I had a hate blog or I had said something awful about their sister, then…cool…I get it.
But really…This is a Mommy Blog.
Years ago, some kids broke windows in every car along my street. I was furious, but it wasn’t just because I had to replace my window. It was just so pointless. Honestly, I would have preferred that they stole my car stereo or something. I would still be upset, but at least I could understand. (Although, now that I think about it, I still wouldn’t have understood because my stereo wasn’t worth stealing. But, you get the point…)
Senseless destruction. So pointless. Grrrr…Clearly, if I hadn’t carved out enough time to upgrade my WordPress installation, I don’t have enough time to deal with their graffiti.
So…Congratulations, you sorry excuse for a human. You managed to hack a Mommy blog. What’s next on your list? Stealing candy from a special needs child?
