Blogstormz- The Secret Brain...

There have been a few discussions lately about Blogstormz turning into an ad site. It reminded me of the Artful Dodger. The blogger that started Blogstormz. He stopped blogging some time ago. I unexpectedly found a link to his site today and followed it. He had deliberately left the blog up with the purpose of it NOT becoming hijacked and becoming an ad site. I know that deleted blogs become spam/ads almost immediately.

It didn't work.

His template is still up. It initially loaded with the original post. It still has the comments that were relevant, but the post has been replaced with ads. What's up with that? Does anyone have any ideas how to protect a site or a blog if the blogger wants to leave or go on an extended time period without posting. Any ideas about how long a blog can go without new posts before it may get hijacked? Any solutions besides "Get off blogger..."

The Artful Dodger's [Edit: link removed as the site may link to pages designed to compromise PC security] last dated post was November 2006. I don't know when it became ads.

I believe he eventually deleted the blog entirely, and that's when an archived page of it became the template for the spam site.

It's been like this for a couple of months. I noticed it a while ago.

AAG's right, unless the somehow released the blog or a keylogger sniffed his password leaving a blog intact would have protected the subdomain from hijacking.

You may notice I removed the link to the site for safety's sake as ad sites like that can contain dangerous content.

No problem removing the link. I found it in an obscure place anyway.

Good to know he actually deleted the blog. Thanks.

No suggestions from me other than, as you say, the obvious. There are enough reasons to leave blogger. Poor security is just one of them.

If he wasn't blogging any longer, he probably wasn't changing his password regularly, which would've left him more vulnerable. Blogger doesn't have any protection against "brute force" password hacking. In other words it doesn't advise the owner there have been unsuccessful, attempted logins. There is nothing to stop a hacker, with time, simply trying every password until it gets through.
