A cautionary tale not to ignore a security alert concerning an exploit in old Pivotx versions. Luckily I did have a current site backup available to run an upgrade and re-load onto my hosting provider.
Thanks to an eagle eyed friend the hacked site wasn't up for to long. Must remember to keep the site updated lest it get completely out of date.
At least it was a good excuse to update the engine and I can now have a bit of a poke around under the hood to see what new features are available.

Update - looks like some people from Turkey are being quite persistant (Turk Telekom 184.108.40.206 & 220.127.116.11) - we'll see if the newly patched Pivotx can hold-up.
Update - More hits from Turkey - must be hitting that Pivotx exploit (Turk Telekom 18.104.22.168 & Vodafone Turkey 3g Ip Pools 22.214.171.124).
Must remember to back up my site and its configuration more regularly . . .
