The cracks are showing

By Gareth Renowden 18/12/2009


At 9-45am this morning, hackers broke into Hot Topic’s WordPress installation and wreaked havoc. I’ve wasted a whole morning trying to put things right — and we’re slowly getting there. It will take a while to get the look and feel back to normal, and I’m sorry to say that we’ve lost all comments made since my last database backup (yesterday morning). I do have email copies of those, so if anyone wants their words of wisdom restored, let me know. Registered users should change their passwords by logging in and clicking on your name to access your profile.

[Update: Getting there… slowly…]

[Update2 5pm: I think everything’s now cleaned up.]
