Hacking – A Blogger’s nightmare! #Superbloggerchallenge2018

Each one of us has their own version of nightmare. A person, thing or a situation which you fear the most. A blogger’s worst fears come alive when they are denied access to their blog. Getting a mailer that your website content is hacked or has malicious content is a terrible thing. And, I have faced this issue recently.

Last weekend, I woke up to mailers that some of my web pages have been hacked by a third-party. To be honest, this was a first timer for me and I cannot express my anger in simpler words. Why would anyone want to do that? It’s not that my blog holds million dollars code which you would want to hack. It’s a simple blog where I share my thoughts of here and there.

Coming back to the point, few web pages are hacked – the solution should be simple enough. I will find the spam pages & delete them. Alas, things don’t run so easily. My password stopped working and login was disabled. Thus, I was out of the loop completely. It took lots of effort & support from the hosting provider to get back the access.

The story does not end here. Even after getting the access, it is a mess. I had to search and delete malicious content. The theme is amiss, background images are missing and the widgets are corrupted. As soon as I edit one widget, the other stops working. Thankfully, the blog posts were not deleted!

Recovering & setting up the blog is a time-consuming task and requires baby steps. On the bright side, I was thinking of renovating the blog since long. Now, I have the chance & time to get it done. I also learnt some major security lessons from this. Every dark cloud has silver lining. 🙂

I will get carried away and fill pages on this and few questions will still haunt me. Why does a hacker hack? What pleasures do you get from it? You need to find yourself a new hobby.

Have you ever faced this issue? How did you cope with it and what steps did you take to make your blog more secure? Do share your thoughts with us!

AtoZ Challenge 2018 Theme Reveal Post #AtoZ

AtoZ challenge is a month long blogging challenge in April each year. Bloggers around the world participate in it, writing one post each day titling them in a chronological order starting from A to Z. Sundays are rest days.I am participating in this challenge for second year in a row. Unlike, last year this time I intend to keep the posts linked together with a theme.

I am trying to sharpen my fiction writing skills and hope to do justice to it! Tighten your seat belt as I take you on a journey of a pregnant woman’s daily life – ‘Pregnant & on the run’. She will be witty & sassy, serious & sombre. She wakes around with a certain grace or you can call it penguin walk. Little stories from how she balances her work and home. A little bit of this and that!

I am taking part in this challenge along with Blogchatter team. Because, we all need some motivation!

Hope to see you around. 🙂

Review of AktivHealth,Noida Center

AktivHealth is an advanced physiotherapy & rehabilitation center  that introduced to India the active part of rehabilitative procedures for orthopedic and neurological treatment. The Active treatment requires active patient participation whilst at the same time addresses individual patient needs and limitations. This active approach is combined with other effective passive forms of treatments provided by them – professional physiotherapy, massage, electrotherapy and other useful therapeutic modalities. They have opened up a new center in Noida this March.

With long hours of the day spent sitting in front of computer, I am prone to backache. Therefore, when I got the opportunity to visit the AktivHealth center for a therapy session, I jumped at it. At the center, I was greeted by Mr. Nandlal, the center head, who explained to me the whole process of active approach of the treatment and the facilities at the center. They have incorporated German technology for the therapies to help their patients.

Facilities at the AktivHealth, Noida center
  • Centrally located in Sector 62, Noida
  • Courteous and trained staff members
  • The entire center is organised and hygienic
  • A well equipped training room with modern amenities for functional movement conditioning, Medical Training Therapy (MTT), etc.
  • Nine treatment rooms for one-to-one therapy sessions
  • Regular consultations with on-staff orthopedic expertise and sports injury specialists
  • Dedicated staff for Paediatric Physical Therapy
  • Dedicated lab for Oncology(cancer) Rehabilitation

I took an hour-long  therapy session for my backache & it was very beneficial. They helped in identifying the root cause & provided me tips to maintain correct posture to support the spinal cord. Complete transparency and communication of the actual diagnosis and cure was maintained. I could feel improvement in pain from the first session itself. Overall, my personal experience was great & I would suggest you to visit the center for your treatment. For more details about AktivHealth, you can visit there website here.
