I have just been notified by my hosting provider that my FTP password had been compromised.

Some moron hacker injected most of my HTML files with malicious code, which was subsequently cleaned up by my provider, leaving all HTML files truncated and broken.

If any of you tried to access Vincent Mounier Photography dot com during that time and got empty pages or some garbage, I apologize. It would seem the web is a very insecure place these days. Measures are being taken and policies implemented for this not to happen again.

The blog was not affected, as the attack targeted HTML files and the blog is run by PHP.

UPDATE: The first wave of this attack seems to have been fended off. New security measures are being implemented. My hosting provider has been helpful, and so have the fine folks over at CloudFlare, a new service I have been experimenting with for some time now…
