One of my sites was compromised; in computer lingo, it was attacked by some hackware where if you clicked on one of the search engine results for that site, it redirected you to another site - similar to "phishing." It ended up taking me the better part of half the night and morning to clean it up. Although, it's a rarity, and the site has been indexed through Google since its inception, it was an unpleasant, icky experience. This is where we are: No matter how vigilant, tech savvy and security-conscious, up to date one continues to maintain a site, there are exponential vulnerabilities. The ubiquitous malware and attempted breaches are only going to get worse. I am in the process of phasing out website and logo creation, while maintaining and updating the ones I've created. If a client requests help with their site, I am available to give some technical advice but I will not be taking on new clients for website creation.
