It’s not the first time that I’ve been hacked and I’m quite sure that it won’t be the last time either. Today, I found out that my web host (Dreamhost) was hacked.

Part of being hacked is trying to figure out what was taken. It takes time to review logs, so I’m not too concerned that Dreamhost can’t answer questions about what data was compromised.

The thing that gets me is that they never emailed me to let me know what was going on. I found out about the breach by reading Tech Crunch. That’s really what I’m grumpy about tonight…that and the passwords I have to reset.

Update > 12h on

Dreamhost sent an email overnight with password advice. I’m still not impressed by the 12-hour delay.
