Speciesgame.com is clean again

The trojan has been removed, and a firewall has been put in place to prevent malware from making it’s way onto the site again.

A word of advice to fellow website owners: if your “website protection” software doesn’t explicitly say it includes a firewall, then it’s entirely a reactive scan and you’re not actually being protected from anything at all.

    Uhm, huh? Are you running the site on a virtual machine? Or just on webspace? In the latter case, a firewall would be useless. In the former case, more or less as well.

    Did you use Coverty? They were recently breached, which fucked up a ton of wordpress installations. But that has nothing to do with firewalls.
