I’m running so behind with the wrap-up this week. Just going to go ahead and blame it on the time change, as well as finally having a few sunny and warm(er) days to enjoy. What a welcome change it’s been!
Well, sad to say that I experienced my first attempted blog hacking this week. Thankfully, I have the Wordfence security plugin installed, so it locked out the hacker after several failed login attempts.
When I got the email alert from Wordfence, I was surprised and disappointed. I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I went back into my settings and adjusted a few things to strengthen up security. I also put the hacker’s IP address on block. It’s just upsetting to think that anybody would care enough to make so many attempts to get into my site.
To my fellow bloggers out there, has this happened to you? Do you use Wordfence, or have any other recommendations for me?
