It has since been professionally repaired and protected by an appropriate firewall.
In case there is a further incident of this type and as a precautionary measure I suggest that you implement suitable back up arrangements. I do not consider that a further attack is likely.
Since mid December 2019 my website has been periodically hacked. On two occasions I have shared my concerns with my readers about this problem . These concerns were in my blogs dated December 18th last year and January 6th this year respectively. This is despite me having Sucuri overseeing my site since those early days.
I do not blame Sucuri for this as the attacks have not only been regular but as I have been informed by Sucuri sophisticated as well.
Unfortunately I recently learned that the most recent attack two weeks ago has caused great distress to a few of my regular readers. You might be one of them.
If this is the case please be assured this has caused me a considerable degree of grief and anxiety on your behalf.
For this I am most sorry and apologise profusely!
In response to these series of worrying attacks I have upgraded my security arrangements with Sucuri. In your interests (and my own) I am now paying a significant annual sum to Sucuri for additional website protection. This includes Sucuri installing a more sophisticated firewall to help protect the site.
However, not withstanding these improved security arrangements if you feel that you would care to continue to read my posts I strongly suggest that you install suitable back up arrangements without delay!
