With the ongoing war in the Gaza strip, my site became under attack as many other sites (see report in Slashdot). If normally, the readers came mostly from Israel and a bit from abroad, now I have a lot of attackers looking at the site from other places, not so benevolent.
The net result is a defacing of the site due to XSS vulnerability in Joomla, requiring a complete reinstall and configuration. The positive outcome is a re-upload of all the posts and a bit of clean up of the installed modules.
I believe this is just a face of the cultural clash between the different religions, and a bit of people just enjoying being destructive. At the end, it will have null effect on the war and the public opinion. For me, I’m just another casualty of the e-War.
