We’re back from the hack: We appreciate your patience

by Stephen Cobb on April 20, 2013

cyber-crimeAs you may have noticed, most of the pages here at Celtic Curse have been unavailable for a number of days. That’s because some thoughtless cyber criminals had attacked the server on which this website is stored and installed their own malicious code. That code was then used to launch attacks on other websites. The attacks came to the attention of the hosting company from which we rent our server. The company disconnected us from the Internet.

Unless you are a thriving enterprise, you are not likely to have access to the extra resources required to cover from something like this. Fortunately, we were able to get the advice of friends and clean up the server, reinstall this site, and bring it back online without losing any information.

At the same time we put some new security measures in place to help prevent this from happening again.

We will try to pay more attention to the site in the future and keep the helpful content coming. Thank you for being patient. (I am reminded that many people with hemochromatosis have a lot of patience, waiting for doctors, and test results, and answers.)

And thank you for visiting our backup plan, the Hemochromatosis page over on Facebook, a good place to check in from time to time for news and contact with others who are dealing with this debilitating condition. Please Like the page in Facebook to encourage others to pay attention to hemochromatosis.
