Math and Multimedia got hacked today, twice!

Math and Multimedia got hacked today, not only once but twice. The website was redirected to online website selling medicines and drugs.

I called the hosting service this morning and they got it fixed, only to discover that it was hacked again around 5pm local time. I was able to install a security plugin and I yet have to see if it is effective.

The hacker/malware changes the code of the .htaccess file of WordPress. For those who are familiar with Wordpress blogging, this is easy to troubleshoot. You just copy the .htaccess file from another blog and overwrite the code. However, the long term solution should be to disable access to your .htaccess file. Apparently, mine was vulnerable.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
