Some of you likely noticed the site was down for about 12 hours over Jan 2/3.
I had been the target of a “brute force” attack to attempt to login to the site administration, presumably to install malicious scripts, etc.
The attack was not successful, however it did consume all of the CPU cycles of my host’s server, so they shut off access to the site.
I have installed countermeasures, none of which are visible to readers.
It’s the wild west out there.
