They tried to hack what?

Well, it was bound to happen. My site has only been up for a few weeks, and already some idiot in France with a rogue bot has found me. Apparently these attacks on WordPress-based sites, masked as the work of the Microsoft Bing search crawler, have been going on for at least a year now. Well that’s just great. Of course they won’t find anything on my site that isn’t already public, but they sure can drag down a site while they’re working their mischief.

So if you’ve tried to access my site lately and found it to be either slow or non-existent, my apologies – our pathetic little hacker was probably involved. Defenses are now in place with more to be added soon, so hopefully it won’t happen again.
