dear cracker


Please stop attacking my site.

195.5.117.252 – – [18/Apr/2008:09:01:01 -0500] “GET /gallery/update.php HTTP/1.1” 200 31008 ”-” “User-Agent: Opera/9.27 (Windows NT 5.2; U; ru)”


For everyone else, my server was compromised this morning using an exploit for an old version of the coppermine photo gallery software.

I have removed the gallery from this site (and others I run), and I've now restored everything from a clean backup.

Moral of the story: Don't, ever, under any circumstances, run old code and forget about updating it to patch against new exploits.
