"The loophole was in the timthumb.php file, which is a script commonly used in WordPress's (and other software's) themes and plugins to resize images. The exploit allows an attacker to arbitrarily upload and create files and/or folders on your account, which can then be used for a number of malicious tasks, including but not limited to defacement, browser high-jacking and infection, data harvesting and more. After a site has been exploited, it may lead to becoming labeled a "Malicious Website" by Google or other security authorities. Any timthumb.php file below version 1.35, but above version 1.09 is considered vulnerable, unless patched"
My father in law also had an car accident last week. My wife and I had to rush back to Malaysia every night to see him. That also reduced the time I had for Internet marketing. Overall, it was a super unproductive month for me. Let's see how my income did shall we?
(By the way, you can check out the rest of my income reports here)
Making better affiliate niche sitesA side note: the amazon challenge is not dead! I am just trying to redo the sites to give them a purpose, rather than just making me money. I am also trying to make them more pretty because I discovered that the more beautiful my sites are, the more I want to care for them and create good content. Also, it creates a collector's mentality as I want to 'collect' as many nice sites as I can. Who wants to have a collection of ugly sites? :p
Such changes create a very nice virtuous cycle but it does take a lot of my time since I possess the most horrible design skills among everyone in the IM niche. : )
So, if you are waiting to see an update, it is coming soon. More of my niches will be revealed! LOL
Adsense Income Report: USD622affected by Panda 2.6. Say what you may, there is still nothing better than making niche sites and collecting money.
Skimlink Income Report: USD113amazon niche sites challenge. In fact, I am still not done yet due to the lack of time.
Anyway, the income has falled quite significantly due to the hack and the conversion to skimlinks. I am hoping to see a much better April.
