Security compromise

Posted by admin on 25th June 2007

We were warned by our provider Siteground that their servers have been compromised by a newly found leak. They have taken the necessary steps to correct the issue.

However vistors of their hosted sites may have encountered malicious attempts to infiltrate their system by browsing an affected site.

We strongly suggest vistors to check their system for viruses, trojans and spyware and have a working and properly configured firewall in place.

Windows XP SP2 has a firewall feature. Make sure it is enabled and configured properly. However we recommend using a third party security product that will not only check incoming but also outgoing traffic.
