    It's funny how every time I write about Palestine, I get a slew of hack attempts ranging from the most primitive to the most complicated scary ones. I won't get into much details, but I've been noticing a huge amount of unnatural activity.

    And, I only occasionally write about Palestine, I wonder the kind of hell bloggers like Sabbah go through to maintain their blogs and their sanity safe against such odds!

    Not so long ago, Blogger Izzi had her site hacked. Same happened to Eman and a bunch of responsible bloggers who have been subject to all sort of attacks. Some were physical against their sites, others were social against their personality.

    Let me assure you, there are many who are contributing to the effort of silencing people. From your own personal government, to social and e-attacks

    It's not like there hasn't been similar attacks against other figures. the infamous Wafaa Sultan had her online site hacked. I'm sure other public figures have daily attacks against their sites. The pentagon claims to repel three billion attacks a DAY! I have no reason not to believe these figures.

    If all of that depressed you, here's a little bit of a good news. Most of these attacks are being repelled and most sites are safe. In fact, more sites are becoming secure than say, 8 years ago at the peak of the dot com bubble.

    It doesn't take much to bring a site up online. It's only common sense that is needed to keep the sites safe and secure, not only for the site owner but also for he readers.

    Always follow the golden rules, if you don't know, ASK! If you're not sure, ASK. The worst thing is that most people who are vulnerable don't even know that they are. Or have a false feeling of safety.

    Hackers, it's not cool, it's not romantic, it's not going to turn you into a "Neo" and you will not hook up with a Trinity. Fact is, if you continue on this route, the closest you would be to the female genitalia is the time when you were born. So get off your bumps and get out a little.

    Fi kteer Agent Smiths bel dinyeh :D

    I wonder if they're all cloned from and look like morons
    Hmm .. what kind of attacks have you been getting ? Are they mostly DoS attacks or what? Can you please share with us what kind of attacks have been directed at you (either as a comment or via email) so that we can be on the look out ?

    Thanks.
    KJ
    LOL! Yeah, I wonder

    Za3tar
    I had a slew of SQL injection attacks in addition to all sort of DoS and defacing attempts
    mmm interesting. 6ab does that apply also lal nas elly zayy 7alatna, ya3ny blogs hosted by blogger or wrodpress..etc? Wella the host takes care of such issues?

    If not, are there some basic, simple, precautionary steps one can take on an individual level to avoid such issues?  
    You know, I would recommend that people know what they're running on their blogs. Many of the plug-ins, widgets ..etc come from questionable sources and cause issues. The least of them is the nuisance of pop-ups. While more serious ones might hijack the site and try to install harmful apps on your machine

    This is what happened for the blog of Aya al Mousa, which was hacked and turned into an infested pool of malicious code. Other places converted to link farms.
    It's not pretty I'm telling you. We all need to remain alert
    Thanks for sharing. I guess for those of us who are using third-party blogging engines just have to make sure to have the most up-to-date version of their blogging engine.  And as you said, be careful of what pluggins they run on their site.

    Thanks for sharing.
    hmmm how about me! i have your plaing regular wordpress blog, should i worry?
    Yap.

    I think about ten years ago, my husband had put up an Islamic site.  It was hacked and the cover page said MOSSAD all over it.  We were very shocked.  Not sure it was the real thing or just some jerks who thought that was very funny.  Allahu alim.  
    Some idiot left me a comment on how I'm paranoid, this idiot apparently is from some strange planet where political hacking don't exist. I suggest he goes back to it

    Everyone else.. (Um Omar, Hamede, wonders, Za3tar, Adoosh and KJ + everyone who emailed  )thank you for your support
