WordPress School Site Hacked Again

WordPress School Site Hacked Again!

Another 2 WordPress independently hosted school websites were hacked at the weekend. I am sure there was more but only 2 contacted me.

Please install one of the following security plugins.

All in One WP Security

WordFence (free version)

If they are determined to hack your site at least make it more difficult for them.

If your site is backed up regularly you can have it rolled back to the last clean publication. Remember to change your password, and lock the htaccess and config files from the control panel.

ASUS Tinker Board gallery

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I am not feeling the love. Despite all my online research and phone calls I still have not managed to get my hands on an ASUS Tinker Board. It would appear that no business, big or small,  is prepared to stock the product on the island of Ireland as the demand seems to be non-existent. To add insult to injury the prices are ridiculous on eBay as people are p. I have admitted defeat and have resigned to just publish a link to the ASUS Tinker Board gallery.
