Security Incident

I logged on to my WordPress.com account today and was met with the following message;

 

I actually love seeing these messages.

Not that I’m a sadist, but the less trust I have in the privacy of anything on the internet, the better. WordPress tried to reassure me with words such as “low-level break-in,” “It appears that information disclosed was limited,” and “we don’t have any specific suggestions for our users…use a strong password.”

Hmmm. Not so reassuring.

Good thing my iPhone is secure and private.

On a side note, someone from Slovenia visited my site. And Jamaica. I thought that was pretty irie, mon.

One Response to Security Incident

  1. WordPress is trying to spin this the best way they can to calm us by using words like “incident” and low-level,” nice. A break in is a break in. When my car was stolen a few years ago I never referred to it as a”low-level” theft or an “incident.” In the end, it’s really a game of numbers and a matter of time. Even if you have the best passwords out there you are still vulnerable. How many times have we heard about Visa/Mastercard being hacked? If they can’t keep their severs secure how are we expected too. BTW – I’ve been tracking you via your ‘secure’ iPhone and it appears you have been a frequent visitor to McD’s… Supersize me!
