Angry Asian Buddhist Hacked!

Update: The Angry Asian Buddhist blog is no longer hacked!

Don’t go to the Angry Asian Buddhist blog! Sometime in the past couple of days the site got hacked. You can learn more about it at the Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page. If you do a Google search for “Angry Asian Buddhist,” you’re likely to find a result that says, “This site may harm your computer.”

Keep your computer safe, and don’t visit the site. I’ve tried cleaning the blog template (as all pages seem affected), but I don’t really know what I’m doing and my efforts have appeared fruitless. Google still sees malware on my blog. So, that said, I’d like to request help from my technologically savvy Dharma friends out there.

If you have any suggestions, please help me know, especially if you can answer my question on Google webmaster forums (search for arunlikhati). I’m well out of my comfort zone here, so your feedback would be much appreciated.

I’ll continue my Angry Asian Buddhist posting here until I can clean up the other blog.

  1. Thanks for your comment—I’ve followed that advice as much as I could and more. The Google Help forums were incredibly useful, and it seems that I was hacked through a link to the HereAndNowProject, which likewise has been hacked (although you can still access their website, don’t). At this point, I’m waiting for Google to thoroughly review my site and verify whether or not it’s veritably cleaned.

  2. Arunlikhati,

    I have went to the site today and I get no warnings about Malware. I am using Malwarebytes and Kapersky. Dangerous Harvests did not give me a warning either but the Here and Now Project did. Do you think your site is clean? I put your link to private sadly awaiting word. I wish I knew something to help. I am very saddened to hear of this and pray the Buddha of Compassion protects your wonderful site.

  3. @reflectionsofabuddhistmonk: I think things are okay now. It had to do with a favicon; it’s a reminder to me to be more careful about what and how I link to other websites. I think the Here and Now Project should be good as well—if not now, then soon.
