Beware: Hotelblogs.org Hacked!

Update May 20, 2008
In order to prevent confusion: Hotelblogs.org is not my site. I was checking it out and found this screen. Whatever it means this Turkish group wants to achieve. It seems the site owner is sound asleep. Also I wanted to share me finding Kwout which is a nice little thing to create screenshots and is now available as an add on for FireFox.

  1. Hi Happy Hotelier,

    Thanks for the post… we’re aware of the issue and are now working on a fix.

    It’s a pity that hackers take the time to target hospitality and travel sites / blogs too, despite no possible financial gain. The SEO exploits are understandable though but still totally unacceptable.

    We’re guessing they’ve exploited vulnerabilities in WordPress – hoping to have the site back to normal soon.

    Rgds, Hotelblogs.org

    Good luck!
