And there is a lesson in that.
- Don’t keep up with security updates
How to keep WordPress secure.
- Don’t make backups
Especially if you’re high profile like Scoble. Robert, you have my sympathy.
I run two backups here. A whole web server backup, and a WordPress Database Backup.
And I’ve used both, at times, to recover from stupidity on my part.
And no Virginia, backups won’t keep you secure. But they’ll allow you to recover from mistakes, or hacking.
If you run a WordPress blog, and you’re not at release 2.8.4, you should upgrade now.
