Robert Abela at WP White Security…
Robert Abela at WP White Security has an interview with BlogVault CEO Akshat Choudhary. The conversion revolves around the security breach involving BlogVault’s online WordPress backup service in February. The BlogVault service itself, it turns out, was not hacked, but a lot of WordPress websites were hacked through a vulnerability in the plugin itself.
The interview walks through the process of BlogVault identifying the issue and the source of the problem.
I had a long talk with Akshat at PressNomics, partially in response to the post I wrote about the issue at the time, which was pretty tough on them. We may do more follow-up, as it was a productive conversation, but for now this interview does a good job describing what they were going through in more depth.
