Some Algerian n0ob hacker just "hacked" my website. Dunno how it really happened but the only thing the incompetent n0ob did was to replace the index.php file with index.mht file. S/he is probably just some random script kiddie.
Even if the hacker had deleted all the files, I could have easily restored it all from backups.
The MHT file didn't even display in the Ffx window. Instead, I got a standard error about contacting the site owner - some 4xx error page which I remember making a couple years back. Anyway, an image of the hacked website as it should had appeared but didn't:
The Pakistani flag is clearly displayed on my website. I don't know what relation I or my site has to the US or Israel.
I just restored the deleted file and saved the raw access logs. Will go through the logs tomorrow to see if something useful catches my eye. I am just too tired right now to care too much about it... *yawns*
However, this has definitely eroded my trust in Nucleus CMS. I might shift to some other blogging software if I can put aside the time required to transition to the new software.
