Site Damaged: Much of it in Internet Archive

It looks like there was a vulnerability in WordPress that let the site get attacked. The result is that a bunch of the posts on here from last semester were replaced with some spam. On some level, it’s a grim last lesson for all of us in the course about how fragile digital information can really be.

I was able to recover a few of the posts through autosaves in the database. Aside from that, a good number of last semester’s posts were captured by the Internet Archive. I’ve included links to those posts below.

It appears that older posts have not been effected.
