this one isn’t spam

This site was hacked a few hours ago via a different user’s account. Sorry if you received any (11) emails/tweets about new spammy posts. I restored yesterday’s backup, generated new security keys, and changed some permissions so it should be fixed now.

Edit 1, 2016-01-14: Then two more snuck through somehow. This is weird. I disabled subscriber emails, updated all plugins, and generated new security keys. Weird. I’ll keep monitoring and might just re-install WordPress.

Edit 2, 2016-01-15: 3 more posts were generated, 2 from a different user and one from my user account. Don’t want to deal with this. Pulled everything from the server and started with a fresh WordPress install. Looked at the 391MB access log and noticed a lot of changes to my xmlrpc.php file on 2016-01-11. Weird. Seems like a brute force attack. Changed all passwords and security keys. Picked a new theme too because why not.

(Hello & good morning)

I will be participating in February Album Writing Month again this year. The goal is 14.5 songs in the 29 days of February (it’s a leap year). It’ll be my 8th time. I am looking forward to it.

2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year full of many new things.

On Tuesday night (2016-01-12) we played a show at the Newark Bike Project with The Promise is Hope and Shane Palko. TPIH is from Massachusetts and they’re a really wonderful duo. Shane was celebrating a birthday and the end of his east coast tour and will be departing for his Asia & Australia tour soon. It was a fun night filled with bagels and a mini snowstorm and many friends and family. I am glad to be a part of this community.
