Hit By A Hacker Attack

Share this post

Over the weekend, you may have noticed my site went down. That’s why there was no blog yesterday or the day before.

What happened was, someone hacked into my hosting account. They purposefully took down the website and tried to lock me out. I had to go through a number of hoops yesterday to restore the account, and I believe we are safe again with precautions I’ve now put into place, but it’s very disconcerting, especially given the timing of the attack.

If you look at last week, I wrote a blog calling out a certain “game designer” and on the other front, the comic book movement I’ve been integral in getting going both took more heat than ever before — with a bunch of randos coming out and blasting me and others personally– and blew up internally with an outrage mob which isn’t healthy at all.

I don’t know who the culprit is, but it’s likely from one of those groups, and I know the attack means I’m very well over the target, and what I’m doing here is VERY effective.

On my front, I’m keeping my head down, trying to get projects done. I have a lot to push forward especially in the next couple of months and I need complete focus in order to get everything done. There’s a lot of fun books coming and I can’t wait to show them all to you.

For now, make sure to read and check out The Blood Of Giants, the sequel to my award winning steampunk novel, For Steam And Country. Book 3 is going to be hitting soon to complete a trilogy and you’ll want to be caught up as the action’s getting VERY intense for plucky young Zaira and company.

  1. After all the crap you’ve dealt with recently (both SFF & Comics), I just want to give you a big ole hug!

    I hold much respect for the poise, and loyalty, you’ve shown through these last few days – holding strong for a friendship, through such a battering wave, is quite the feat. It would’ve been so much easier to denounce, but then how much better would you have been than those cg is SUPPOSED to be fighting against – guilt by association (whether the associate is guilty or not!) is a scourge on civil society.

    I can’t wait to get my comic book perk, and I look forward to seeing what your next project happens to be.. Good luck, and have a relaxing break!

  2. Jon,

    Aaaa that explains what happened to your website. Good to know that it was a hacking attaempt. Will you be filing charges?

  3. Perhaps this was a byproduct of the attack, more likely it’s enemy action (they’ve had upstream sites they aggregate block breitbart.com for example), but your domain was added as a malware site to the list maintained by DNS-BH, and that list is used by uBlock Origin, which is perhaps the very best desktop ad blocker available now.
