Malware Update #2malware update fixed
The Malware insertion attack that occurred starting Wednesday afternoon was brought to a stop early Thursday by removing all advertising on our system. The Malware was being inserted via a vulnerability of OPEN-X, an open source advertising backend that we had been using. OPEN-X has had a number of vulnerabilities over the years, and a continuing problem with these kinds of issues. We could not afford to risk our member's safety by continuing to allow that to exist and which most likely would present threats to you with future issues of the same kind.
Friday, we purchased a new, proprietary system with numerious protection schemes and have worked to bring all of our advertising back online. The new system presents some very powerful features for our advertisers, and we will be contacting them in the coming days to inform them of the new system. Bottom line is that our advertising system is now secure and does not present a potential threat of future exploits.
