malware invasion  

posted by Michael Piwonka 6:34 AM
Google's web analytics tools sent me an email on Monday saying that my website might be infected with malicious software.  They were able to identify a particular file for me that was suspicious.

The file was definitely something that I had never seen before, so I quickly deleted it.  I scanned my entire website directory, and removed a folder that was also unknown to me.

After changing my password, I requested another review of the site by Google, and it appears that all is well again.  I can only assume that somehow my password had been compromised.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
