Website Problem Repaired; Not Caused by Google| The Post & Email

Website Problem Repaired; Not Caused by Google| The Post & Email:

The Post & Email was the victim of a hack attack last Thursday or Friday which caused many readers to be redirected to a fake website as described in our previous articles here and here. The hacker altered the htaccess file, which has now been locked.

The webmaster of the Terry Lakin Action Fund graciously contacted us and repaired the problem very quickly. We have been told that a “common WordPress hack” was used to redirect readers who used Google and several other search engines.

There were several readers of The Post & Email who contacted this writer and stated the same thing, and we thank them for that...................

The 'Reader Responses; shown on many posts/articles are almost always worthwhile reading.

Often, the comments by readers enhance the posted article greatly, and are informative and interesting.

Hopefully, all will remember to read the reader comments, and post their own as well.
