Security Compromise

On Wednesday, August 17, 2011, three of the websites in the CyphersTECH family were compromised due to a vulnerability in a third-party script. The issue was quickly resolved, and is now being monitored to make sure that all traces of the malicious code that had been injected in to our pages are gone. Should you have any issues, or be suspicious about the behavior on any of our pages, please use the Contact Us section to let us know immediately.

No customer data was compromised in this attack, as we took every necessary step to keep the attacker’s access to a minimum. As of now, all passwords of real security clearance have been changed, and our security has been hardened much. We must reiterate, no highly sensitive customer information was obtained by the attacker(s), and the system is now, once again, clean and stable.
