You may have read recently about a problem with the internet - there's a hole in it.
In very basic terms that I've no doubt may be beneath many of you, but not all, it means that a staggering number of websites that thought they were secure for the last few years have found out, through no fault of their own, that they are not.
At the core of the issue is a bug in a file that is common on most servers that could allow access by a third party to sensitive information stored on those servers. This has all come to light in the past few days.
Singletrack was vulnerable to this bug along with millions of other websites. The vulnerability on our servers has already been fixed.
However, no affected websites have any way of detecting if this bug has been exploited in the past. So, what do we all do now?
Change your passwords! Do it now. http://singletrackworld.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword
We recommend that you change your passwords, not only for Singletrack but all websites that you have accounts with, on a regular basis. We've all heard that advice before but it's never been more important to heed it than now.
If you have questions then feel free to ask them here. If you are a techie and have answers to those questions then feel free to chip in. There's already a good thread running at the moment here that has some excellent info and tips.
