If you tried to visit this site most of today, you probably found it inaccessible. Well, some ahole decided to hack my box. As soon as I realized what was going on I collected backups, recorded some forensic information, and wiped the system clean and started over. I had sneaking suspicions something was amiss the last week or so because of strange things that have been happening on my system (which I chalked up to XP and some shell extensions I installed recently). I suspected wrong. This is the price I pay for opening inbound ports on an XP machine and not being more security conscious.

To the guy if you're reading this: F*CK YOU. Oh, and you're either incredibly brazen or incredibly retarded. I have a webcam staring directly into my face when I'm at the console. You remotely take over the mouse and run a program while I'm sitting at it? The network and two firewalls are now hardened. Thanks for the heads up, douchebag. Your upstream ISP will be getting emails and logs about this event, and that little program you ran has been copied and will be analyzed in short order.
