(UPDATED!) Schipul Blogs potentially compromised – we’re working on it

UPDATE: A virus was found that scripted the insertion of hidden links for black hat SEO purposes.   It did not compromise any data and everything is back to normal.   Questions, concerns?   Give us a call!   (281) 497.6567, ext. 411.

This morning, the Schipul team was alerted of a potential security compromise for our Webfaction hosted client Blogs. We are addressing these issues promptly and thoroughly.

Real English explanation: A hacker has been attacking some Blogs, attempting to install content that neither Schipul nor our clients placed there.   As far as our research has been able to determine at this point, they were not successful in compromising any data.

Our entire staff is dedicated to researching this matter and are all on high alert.   As a client, you do not need to do anything at this point.   If you notice anything out of the ordinary on your Blog, contact us immediately at (281) 497.6567, ext. 411 or via email at support AT schipul DOT com.


We will have more information from Webfaction and will update you promptly.

Your security is our top priority – thank you for your trust and your business.
