I know very little about computers. Facebook. I do that. Youtube. I can manage that too. I know how to deal with email. I can upload my photos. Mostly though, what I do is write this blog, and I seem to manage to do that OK. Actually once you get going on those few things I just mentioned, it becomes almost self explanatory.
But I will let you in on a little secret: I do not know what to do if anything goes wrong! All I can do at times like that, is panic a bit and shout for help. Which is usually forthcoming in the shape of Steve, my long suffering neighbour.
The reason I mention my lack of knowledge is because it seems that someone is trying to hack into this blog. I know this because a big red warning sign has flashed up a few times telling me of a threat alert.
|This is what I imagine the hacker to look like.|
Mind you the message did also say threat averted. Which is a good thing of course. But hackers don't give up easily do they?
Maybe I'm being paranoid. Maybe I'm making too much of these warnings. But I heard recently of a very well established blog, with thousands of followers, that was shut down because of hackers, and another one where nasty comments were being made in some innocent persons name.
I suppose hacking is a hobby, and hackers must get pleasure from their hobby. But they must be a bit sick in the head if their fun is to upset other peoples innocent pastimes.
If the threat warnings are correct, and if this blog does get compromised to such an extent that it is ruined permanently I shall just start again elsewhere on blogger, under a different title.
Oh well, I'm probably worrying unnecessarily anyway. If it does happen though, how are you, dear reader going to know where to find me again? I haven't a clue!
If you have any suggestions, please let me know. In the meantime, hackers permitting, I'll be back soon.
