For the last several weeks, North Korea-watchers in Washington have been warning each other about suspicious attachments and spoof messages. I was starting to feel ignored, envious, and unimportant until Friday, when a friend warned me that my site was blocked by his office’s anti-malware software.
I don’t have the sophisticated defenses that big institutions do, but fortunately, I have an excellent hosting service. The last time this happened, they recommended a subscription service that cleans up malware injects. Between the hosting service and the security service, they cleaned out the malware and helped me get everything back to normal with minimal inconvenience and impact on functionality.
I suppose this is an occupational hazard of blogging about North Korea. All of which is a roundabout way of saying, “Be careful out there.”
