Site Security: An Example (Nightmare) of Why You Shouldn’t Ignore It

May More

You can find me at my blog Sex Matters or on Twitter @may_matters. My writing is inherently personal, with posts describing my own sexual ventures into bondage, illustrated by real-life erotic photographs. I started writing fiction just over a year ago and am really enjoying using my deviant imagination to create erotic tales. Occasionally I pen some more earnest articles when I feel a topic is worth discussing.

    Thanks Kayla – I too would recommend Michael – he has helped me on more than one occasion. And I am sure would have here if I had asked x

  2. This was a great post for its informative nature, for its content it made me feel hot and panicky! (as I am sure the events did to you). I can confirm how helpful and approachable DomSigns is – he was endlessly helpful when I went self hosted.
    I am so glad you have not let these events silence your fabulous blog. Thank goodness you had expertise on your side and determination. Well done for coming out of this horror story so well.

    This is such a valuable article and I think it is everyone’s worst fear. I don’t think I would have been able to work our what you did but am glad I was able to help with a tiny amount of the retrieval. Fingers crossed many read this and can avoid the same thing happening. 😊

    Wow May, I had no idea you had been through this whole saga! Glad everything is sorted and Missy and Michael were able to help. I concur that DomSigns is the man to call when in doubt. In fact he has told me to call him first when ANTTHING goes wrong. But then I did once delete my entire site accidentally, while in a pub!

    This is actually frightening and I can’t help but think somehow bordering on illegal? I’ll definitely be checking up on our security asap today. Thankyou Kayla and to May for sharing your story.

    Regarding posts, I highly recommend signing up with an email address and just archiving those emails when you receive them. That way, you have the text, you know where links went to, and you know what images were used. XoXo

    I’m so glad you got everything sorted out. I’d also highly recommend finding a new host. If I win the lottery (hahaha) I’m creating an adult-only sex-positive server farm dammit.

  7. Such a terrible ordeal to go through. That feeling of total and utter despair when you realize there is something wrong with your site is something I don’t even wish on my enemies. Glad you got it sorted, and thank you for this post, as I think this is also the kind of information we should share with each other.

    This reads like a nightmarish thriller May. I am in awe of your abilities. Us lesser mortals, well me really, would just slump to the floor and sob. My abilities really stretch not much further than switching the computer on and off. I am sure what your have written so lucidly will be a help and comfort to those who find themselves in a similar situation.
