Labnol Hacked?


Labnol is the biggest indian blog by Amit Aggarwal.  We all know its the best.

Update: The site is back !!!!!! Our prayers has helped him :D  

It is a site by Amit :

It is a part of the network ” Digital Inspiration” .

Two days before I saw that when I clicked about or some link on labnol I got this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/labnol/ on line 30

That time it self I started to think whether it was going to get hacked or not, but I thought it would be ok after some time .

Then today morning I saw this:

Not Found

The requested URL / was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I thought it was a bug too, and he would fix it too.

But now I could see this on twitter via Amit Aggarwal :

I was shocked to the core ! I was praying for him because for Indian bloggers he is God !

Lets all pray for him .

Now make sure you don’t get yours hacked ! by installing this plugin:

  • Custom login url :

One of the most dreadful mistakes when setting up a WordPress site is having the same login structure that everyone else has.

By default, WordPress sets you up with /wp-admin and /wp-login.php so you can login and start modifying your website.

Unfortunately, 88% of WordPress users do not change or modify these URL’s – giving Hackers & Bots direct access to your login page.

Now you can easily create your own custom URL. When you do, you disable the default /wp-admin and /wp-login.php logins URL’s

The best part… your custom URL is not indexed! This creates extreme aggravation and frustration to Hackers & Bots since they can’t simply scan and find your Custom Login URL.

  • Change Admin User

When you first install WordPress, you are given the option of creating your main admin username.

A large portion of WordPress users, and people in general, tend to use the word admin since that’s the most common username.

This is a huge security risk since hackers know common usernames – now they only have to guess your password.

Up until now, it’s been almost impossible for someone to easily change their admin username. You’d either have to contact a developer or know how to modify your database in order to do so.

With our Change Admin User feature, you can simply choose the admin username from the list and type the new one – Simple, yet Powerful!

And many more !
