If you are a Dreamhost or MediaTemple customer and I know that many WordPress users are, it’s probably been a rough week for you. Just before Thanksgiving, an exploit was used on a subset of MediaTemple grid servers to redirect websites to a 3rd-party advertising website. Also, some customers passwords were compromised as they were stored in the database via clear text. MediaTemple has since switched to an encryption method of storing passwords in databases. Over the holidays, Dreamhost encountered a fairly large network failure. This happened just before they conducted their largest data center move to date. The network failure caused a number of sites to go offline, including a number of Dreamhost official sites.

Here in the states, it is Thanksgiving. The time of year when most stop to think about what it is they are thankful for. In keeping with that tradition, I wanted to give my thanks to the WordPress development team but the thanks doesn’t end there. I also pass on my thanks to each and every one of you who have contributed code to the WordPress project. I’m no coder and I appreciate those who are to help guide me around the more interesting parts of WordPress. A very special thanks goes out to plugin and theme developers. You folks really enable end users to take WordPress up to the next level. I would also like to give thanks and recognize those who cover WordPress within the community. These are sites which keep users informed, provide great information, and increase the end users knowledge of what this piece of software […]
