Just another hack: backup everything, my friends

What was this? The fourth, maybe the fifth time this blog went down.

First time, the low cost hosting company decided to pull a disappearing act, and away it went. With all cyber’s files.

Second time, someone defaced the homepage.

Third, fourth and maybe fifth, “malware” was detected. No, not that kind of malware, the one that messes up your UV maps, it’s a specific breed of useless, malicious scripts that get installed into blogs and websites.

Lucky me I keep a backup of everything now (an habit that goes hand in hand with doing 3D work, but I wasn’t smart enough to apply The Rule to this blog the first time). So I packed my things, and looked for another hosting provider, hoping that it will be more secure.
