Website & computer security breach

by on Aug.23, 2017, under News & Events

This website and my home computer were targeted and compromised July-August 2017.

The site was hacked, and was used as a launching point for mass/spam email.   If you received strange email, it was without my knowledge or approval.

Black Sun, my hosting company, caught the problem in mid-August.   I’ve been assured the breach is now closed, and this site is back to normal.   However, closing the breach means that the option to sign up as a site user is closed, which is fine since this is not a traditional blog with comment threads.

Six full malware scans have been completed on my home computer.  We did find, clean, and extract 6 different pieces of malware.   I’m now able to process payments and send and receive documents safely.

We apologize for the delays and inconvenience this has caused, as well as slow response times while the computer and site have been in scanning/cleaning modes.
