Just a short housekeeping note — I discovered yesterday that this site had been hacked, probably through an SQL injection attack. It was one of those clever hidden spam installations, so I never even knew there was a problem until some of the folks at THATcamp pointed it out to me. I believe I’ve recovered everything and cleaned out all the covert code and backdoors, but if you notice anything awry, please send me email via gene-at-this-domain.

If this ever happens to your wordpress site, I found that this and this were useful sources of information. Hope you never need them though.
