As many of you know, I left for vacation last month. In hindsight, I should’ve kept this information private.
On the day I left, a hacker logged into my webhost support site and asked for the details to transfer the www.davidairey.com domain.
Ordinarily, this wouldn’t have allowed them to steal my domain, but they must also have had access to my Gmail account, from where they could verify the transfer. The passwords were different, and it’s one of those things I’d love to know how it was done.
At the time of writing, I’m using www.davidairey.co.uk for my website, and will continue to do so whilst I initiate court proceedings.
In the meantime, please bear with me as there are many internal site links that lead to the old .com address, and almost all my blog post images are unavailable. I’m working on it, and hope to have everything back to how it was in the very near future.
Should you wish to send me an email, I’m temporarily using d.airey at gmail.com, until further notice (with a brand new password). To those of you who emailed my old davidairey.com address (within the past month), I’m very sorry, but they no longer exist. I sincerely hope you didn’t spend too long writing your email.
Can you help?
If possible, I’d greatly appreciate you helping me to spread the word of my move. Also, and I don’t like to ask, but if any of you have a link to my blog on your site, it’d be very kind if you were to change the .com to .co.uk.
www.davidairey.com is in the hands of a hacker.
www.davidairey.co.uk is my new online home.
Vacations. Great, aren’t they?
Here’s a tip, remember to regularly update your email account passwords. Any passwords for that matter. As soon as I know what else to look out for I’ll be sure to say.
For those of you subscribed to my site via email or RSS, no need to change anything. You’ll still be receiving regular updates.
I hope all’s well.
