This is more of a public service announcement for people who run their own website (kinky or not).
I manage or help manage somewhere around 35..holy fuck 35?…shit let me count again…yep around 35 websites, some are kinky and some are vanilla.
Well this morning when I was going through my emails from overnight, I had a notification that someone tried to hack into one of the kinky sites I manage for a friend. They probably would have succeeded if I hadn’t remembered to install some basic software that blocks people who are attempting unsavory things.
If you have a self-hosted wordpress site I cannot stress how important it is to have some kind of security. Rather than write out a long tutorial I recorded a quick screencast on how to setup a popular security plugin called Wordfence.
Now this doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed to not get hacked. There is nothing you can do to guarantee that…other than not having a website. But using a plugin like this is a good start.
