Looking for Karin at Making the Seam?

Out with the old, in with the new...

Karin's old blog unfortunately caught a virus. Find her new blog at Sew Here We Go Again.

FYI...my malware warning system (whatever it's really called) is not letting me visit any blogs who still link to her old blog.

  2. Thanks for the link! I was able to read most of her last post saying she was moving because of the malware issue, but couldn't find her new site!

  3. Thank you, and unfortunately she was not the only one with the malware on my list..How does a blog catch malware, anyway? What's the point of hacking a sewing blog? Can someone explain this?

  4. Thank you for posting that link, Joy! It's scary to think how easily one could lose their blog like that...

  5. Barbara - the most common way to spread malware is by embedding it in pictures, particularly pictures of celebrities which people are most likely to search, click on, or display on their blogs. Visiting a blog with an image embedded with malware makes you vulnerable too, even though you may not know anything happened.

  6. I am having the same thing with my computer warning me against going to several sewing blogs I read. Right now its just popping up on sewing blogs. My canning blogs and goat farm blogs seem to be okay. Its saying they have malware or one other name.

  7. Joy I am glad that you found me! It is really kind of you to make a general post like this. It feels a bit daunting to start over! I am not sure how I got the malware. I didn't have a lot of gadgets or anything. Who knows? It seemed best to just delete it. I did not want to mess anyone else up. It will take me a while to get the thing "rebuilt" I am still trying to figure out what my full blogroll was!

Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
