This evening I found out that my WordPress website was hacked on 17-09-2009 10:00 localtime (Two days ago). 🙁 Not visible spam was added to the footer of this website and all downloads access rights were changed. Does anyone know how this is possible with WordPress 2.8.4? I upgraded three weeks ago my website to WordPress 2.8.4 so I personally think this hack is done with a WordPress 2.8.4 exploit!
The good news is that now everything is working normal again because i did the following things:
– Removed the spam from the footer.php template!
– Corrected the download access rights!
– Protected my score webservice against SQL insertion
– Set the unix file rights to readonly
– Changed all passwords

OK thats not fair, why someone hack you. You make nice homebrew, whats wrong with the hacker guys? Nothing to do? 😯
Thanks for you support! 😀
I hope you have a backup for your site and the bad guys do homework and not hacking sites.
You are totally right! Greeting ❗
the wii pong2 homebrew download is still coming up as 0 bytes.

Thanks for the comment, I have added the requested files again! 😀
