Another reminder to use strong passwords and never use the same password on more than one site.
This bot has been trying to break into my wife’s site for over two hours. I noticed the attack shortly after it tried to login using my username, which is not “admin” (which is troubling in itself). I perm-banned the IP address, but it’s still trying to access the login page for more than two hours.
Tips for securing your sites/social networks:
Use strong passwords. I sound like a broken record but your kids name or dog’s birthday suck as passwords. Just buy 1Password already.
Do not use the same password on multiple sites. This bot obviously got my username from a previous security break at some other site. Luckily all my passwords are different.
Wordpress plugins like Wordfence are great, too. Right on their homepage you can see the attacks they are blocking in real time. Pretty amazing. This plugin gives you beefed up security options, it’s what notified me that my sites were hacked within seconds of it happening, and within minutes I was able to neutralize the attack so it didn’t get any worse.
I know the way Superman is treated is upsetting. It doesn't really look as if he'll bounce back to the guy we've learned to love with our minds and hearts because he's constantly being grounded in violence, destruction, death, fickle virtues, evil, ineffectiveness and sadness. But even if DC completely dilutes the meaning the original character is constantly trying to portray he'll never be completely wiped away. Thank you for keeping Superman, the real one, alive for just a bit longer.
Well, thanks, anonymous friend. I certainly appreciate the sentiment though I still think you can find some good Superman stuff being published by DC. And it’s not like the older stuff ever really goes away. Regardless, thanks for reading and thanks for the kind words.
