Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Tom’s Barn Website Drama

It has happened. The thing one dreads has happened, and our website has been hacked, significantly. One dreads this sort of thing but at the same time rather hoping and assuming that this sort of thing doesn’t happen to innocent little websites like ours – the CIA maybe, or the Pentagon, or Sony, or a big financial institution, but not Tom’s Barn…

We have learnt a lot of painful things over the weekend, and one is that it isn’t necessarily anyone looking specifically for vital information, but automated bits of software, just looking for any chink through which to worm their way into the works of a website – in our case, into a WordPress website.

It did not take our web man, Jeremy Brough, very long to restore the bare bones of our site but it will take a great deal more time and thought to restore it to how it was. As we had for some time been planning a complete revamp of our site, it might seem now is the time to tackle that but there is a lot of mess to be cleared up first… One can’t start redecorating when surrounded by rubble and mess.

So, ‘please bear with us’ and ‘thank you for your patience’ as those tedious and insincere telephone recorded voices bid one relentlessly and without conviction… Website-wise things are pretty rough at the moment, and we are genuinely very (very!) sorry, but all being well you can still see the blog posts, and still book if you want to.

And if anyone has some really helpful suggestions about how we could improve and modernise things as we go, we’d be delighted to hear, please!
