You thought it will never happens to you but when it does are you prepared? was defaced yesterday. He lost his database and 2-3 days of posts.

Hong Kiat’s Fix:

  1. Upgrade to WordPress 2.2.1

  2. Restore the backup of the database. He was lucky to have one.

I visit Hong  almost everyday, his posts are quite good. It’s to know that he is back online.

Lesson to learn:

Make sure to always upgrade when a security patch is released. We don’t live in a perfect world anymore where people are nice and decent. Your best friend is prevention.
