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. ūüôā

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!

My tryst with White Sauce Pasta! #SuperBloggerChallenge2018

Cooking White Sauce Pasta

‘Life is not worth living if I cannot have pasta or bread again.’ Monica Seles
Who can resist the creamy, cheesy textured, delectable pasta? If there is one thing that I can eat 24*7, its Pasta. After spending tonnes of hours & energy in search of good pasta at a restaurant, I decided to make it on my own. And, it turned out to be pretty good.

Ingredients
  • Butter – Two tablespoons
  • Olive Oil
  • Maida or Wheat flour – Two tablespoons
  • Milk – Two cups
  • Pasta – Two cups
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Add-on vegetables like red or yellow capsicum,mushroom, broccoli, corn.
Recipe for White Sauce Pasta –
  1. Boil two cups of pasta & set it aside to cool.
  2. Finely chop the onions, garlic & vegetables of your choice and saute them in olive oil. Add a pinch of salt, oregano & basil leaves for taste.
  3. Heat two tablespoon butter in a pan and add Maida to it. Stir the mix on low flame till it turns light brown.
  4. Add two cups of milk in the pan. Keep stirring to avoid lump formation.
  5. Add salt to the mix & simmer for 3 minutes until a consistent creamy layer is formed.
  6. Add the boiled pasta & sautéed vegetables to the pan. Mix well.
  7. White Sauce Pasta is cooked and ready to be served.Pasta with grilled vegetables
Additional tips –
  • Add few drops of olive oil to water while boiling Pasta. It helps to avoid sticky pasta.
  • For a healthier choice, prefer Wheat over Maida for preparing sauce. Wheat sauce may require more amount of milk.
  • Do not add all the milk in one go, add milk in intervals & stir continuously to avoid lumps.

Side dishes –

It can be enjoyed alongside bread of your choice. Or,if you are like me, then you might also enjoy a bowl of soup or grilled vegetables to go with it.
