All Is Clear On The Home Front…

Some of you might have noticed that DadThing was labeled an Attack Site…again… a few hours last night.

I quickly backed up the site and wiped it clean….reloaded a fresh new install or WordPress…using my old theme…and now Google says my site is no longer an attack site…thank goodness!

The last time this happened I went through everything…and deleted a ton of extraneous stuff from the site that had compiled over the past few years…and a few weeks later, the site is “bad” again.  WTH?

My only inclination of what could possibly be wreaking so much terror on the site was the Google AdSense ads that were scattered across the site.  They were the only thing that was not hosted on the DadThing server!  So, they are gone…forever.  😀

I have also done my research on web site security and applied a few more techniques to prevent this type of thing from happening again in the future.

So all is clear….again…  😀

I’ve been working a new site design and will hopeful release it in the near future.  I am also opening up a “Reviews” section of the blog where I will be reviewing many interesting Dad/Guy/Kid/Family related items.  The future is looking very exciting here at DadThing!  😀

Back to your regularly scheduled DadThing fun… 😀

EDIT:  Went back to the blacklist.  I did really find the problem this time. I had to dig through over 10,000 fies on the server, but finally found the culprit!  The site has been submitted for review.  This theme is only temporary until I get the new on done… 😀

DadThing Is Healthy Again!

So, yesterday Google reported DadThing as an attack site.   Yeah, real viscious isn’t it! 😀

This is probably the third time in the past year that DadThing has been hacked.  I’m getting pretty good at fixing it now.  The first two times it was obvious.  If you would view the HTML you would see an encrypted JavaScript being ran in the background.  I had to remove this code from about 100 files throughout the WordPress core.   But this last time I’m not real sure what Google considered malware.

I removed all of the little widgets and chicklets to random sites that promise to send you traffic…cause they weren’t working any ways!  I removed an ad that I added the day before, and I removed a bunch of questionable links left by commenters.

I submitted my site to Google for review around lunch time and 12 hours later DadThing is reported as a friendly site again.  (Click for proof)  Hip Hip Hooray!

So, now back to the regularly scheduled (or not so regularly scheduled) content…  😀

Happy Blog Birthday To Me!

Things have been nuts lately…going here, going there, doing this, doing that.  Life has been far from boring…let me tell ya!

I’ve been so consumed by daily life that I forgot to celebrate DadThing.com’s one year birthday on September 1st!  I’m such a bad webmaster/blogger. 😀

In celebrating the one year birthday here at DadThing.com I wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and share some of the highlights of year number 1…

It Gets Lonely When You Have No Feed

Dear DadThing Readers,

Seeing how most of you come to DadThing via feedreader, you probably thought that I had fallen off of the face of the Earth.  (I surely thought that most of you fell off the face of the Earth and I was one of the only people to survive the DadThing targeted attack.)

Seems as though when I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress (about a month ago) my feeds got whacked and I didn’t notice!  I think they are back online again.  If you get this in your feed reader just post a quick comment and let me know that all is working again and which feed reader you use!

Damned technology…  😀

Thanks,

Jared

DadThing.com – Upgrade Complete

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.3.1. If you find any thing that looks different or you get any error messages please let me know.

I know the “Contact Jared” page is gone. This is an issue I am working out.

There will be some minor changes seen in the near future to take advantage of the new features of WordPress 2.3.1

Thanks!
