Intermediate SQL Color Coded SQL, UNIX and Database Essays

7Nov/140

I’m getting noticed. Today intermediatesql.com was hacked for the 1st time

If you checked intermediatesql.com from your mobile device in the last few days, you might have noticed some eh … “highly questionable content”, which I assure, you, had very little to do with SQL or databases.

Alas, I was hacked. Google was awesome to notify me about it (within 3 days, how cool is that!) and now the site should be back to normal.

I am reasonably sure, I removed all the malware (the same “web redirection” code scattered around ~ 20 different places), but please ping me at: maxymkharchenko@yahoo.com if you notice anything weird.

Apologize for the inconvenience,
Maxym Kharchenko

Smile: I don’t always drink beer …

Remember the ever annoying (but hilarious) Dos Equis guy commercials about “the most interesting man in the world…” ?

Well, I’ve heard a good one today:


… I don’t always test my software … but when I do, I test it in PROD !

Thanks, Arup. Stay thirsty my friends :)
