Well that was annoying

You’ve almost completely forgotten that you ever set up a blog in the first place, until one day an email pops up to verify a Facebook account you’ve never heard of.
That’s odd you think to yourself and point your browser at your long abandoned domain, only to be confronted by a Malware warning. Curiouser and curiouser.

So, after a little investigation, and with a bit of help from google webmaster tools, I’ve realised that the antique version of WordPress languishing here had a security flaw which had allowed some evil miscreant to embed malicious javascript into most posts.

A couple of hours later, and I think I’ve finally cleaned up the database and upgraded wordpress to a /safe/ version.

And with that this blog and can go back into hibernation, see you in another four years…
