As Ellen noted last week, the Rowdy Crowd was the site of a hacking incident that – among other things – shut us down for about 10 days. I’m pleased to report that after days of diligent scrubbing, the house elves report that all of the offending links and defacements have been removed. We lost about six months of content and had to manually edit a couple hundred additional posts to remove ersatz links to a spam farm.
We have great faith in the house elves since…to paraphrase Pogo…they is us, BUT there’s a chance we might have missed a couple. So, if you see a weird link to something that says “financialtime” or an embedded link that looks out of place, don’t click on it. Drop us a note and we’ll dispatch an incident team to the site immediately.
The good news is that – if there are any links – they’re almost certainly in old posts that no one in their right minds would visit. New posts – from mid-June on – we’re pretty confident are clean.
Thank you for your attention and that you for flying SRC airlines.
