p4 blog back online

Community

Recently p4 blog suffered a hacker attack due to a security vulnerability at our hosting provider, Network Solutions. As detailed on Sucuri Security, a large number of WordPress blogs were infected.  Initial reports pointed to a WordPress issue, however further investigation determined that the vulnerability stemmed from a misconfiguration on Network Solutions' servers.

Network Solutions has since fixed the issue, and after extensive cleaning and testing of p4 blog, we found no further problems and brought our blog back online.

You can read more about this issue on the Network Solutions blog.
