Last week my primary server was a mess. It was completely infested with something that was causing redirects to some not so reputable sites.
So finally I rebuilt the server on the Hi12 Tablet from a backup that predated the infections. So far that new copy of the VM seems pretty clean.
I ended up changing every password on those sites to something ridiculously long and impossible to remember and far more difficult to hack. So for the time being we seem to be okay. Of course there are never any guarantees on the internet, but for the last several days my primary server seems to be a-okay.
I can still see a lot of attempts to hack the server in the Apache logs, but as I spot them I add those IP addresses to my firewall. So far I have roughly 100 IP’s blocked and end up adding more each day.
So that about covers that issue for the present, so onto the HiBook. It had an issue yesterday where it simply shut down. After arriving home and plugging it in and trying to restart it the tablet suddenly decided to not respond at all. It would not charge or fire up. It was stone cold dead. So I set it aside for about an hour and tried it again using the reset to defaults start procedure and it fired up and began to charge again. Of course I had to go back into the BIOS and change the memory speed back to 1600 MHz and it is running just dandy again.
The lesson here is not to give up, but be patient and wait and think it through and sometimes it is just luck and others it is simply going back to the drawing board.
That is all for now,
