There is no time like the present to really delve into and master static web generation:
Huge attack on WordPress sites could spawn never-before-seen super botnet. Ongoing attack from >90,000 computers is creating a strain on Web hosts, too
Ongoing malware attack targeting Apache hijacks 20,000 sites. Mysterious "Darkleech" exposes visitors to potent malware exploits
I received the ArsTechnica newsletter with the above stories in my mailbox in the same 5 minute window that Google Webmaster Tools informed me that one of our websites for my work has likely been compromised.
No, it's not running Wordpress, but it is running a blog-style php platform that is several versions behind current because I didn't want to break the site while trying to upgrade a system I don't understand. Now this particular bit of procrastination has turned into a bite!
Guess I know what I'm doing for the next week or more. :-/
