Last night, just after about 7pm, The Daily Blog was subject to an extremely sophisticated hack attack that directed people away from the blog to a gambling site.
This attack occurred a couple of hours after we blogged about Seeby Woodhouse being subjected to questions when entering America and re-entering NZ and a day after we hosted and live-streamed a public meeting against the TICS Bill.
The sophistication of the attack, and a couple of tell tale signatures during the hack, for us, suggest something more insidious and serious than a disgruntled member of the public.
Luckily Selwyn was able to save everything and move us to a more secure position.
I would hate to think this is our tax dollars at work.
