Website Security

It seems as if automated website attacks by compromised machines is something that all webmasters have to think about, because I made the mistake of installing an old version of Wordpress and was surprised to find that my server was now suddenly making a lot of outgoing connections.

When I set up a server using one of the free unix based systems, I will usually configure them so that they will send an email message if there is a problem with the RAID system. Recently the server of a photographer client did send a message saying that one of the disks had a problem.
