Shit, we got hacked!

Under constructionWe’re aware that we Google is warning users that GLONO is listed as suspicious. Our site was comprised and some bad files were added that could apparently cause trouble (that’s all we really know at this time). We have removed the bad files and are currently attempting to batten down the hatches to prevent this from happening in the future.

We’ll keep you informed of any developments here and on Twitter. We’re really sorry about this.

Update: (4pm Central) Well, that sucked. We were off line for hlaf the day. Uggh. Looks like the hacking issues must’ve affected everybody on our shared server. Or something. Still no word from our hosting provider…

Update #2: (9am Wednesday) Still no word from our hosting provider, but I’ve dug into it a little more and it looks like we had an old, unused program on the server that had some security vulnerabilities. Can’t be 100% certain this was the cause of the hack, but I deleted those files as well. As always, it’s a good idea to regularly scan your computer for viruses and other evil shit. We use Malwarebytes, but other free scanners include: Trend Micro Housecall, Kaspersky, Symantec (Norton), BitDefender, Windows Live OneCare, Computer Associates, McAfee, F-Secure (via).

  1. What was that annoying giant ad that used to pop up on the main page? I blame that. Whatever it was.

  2. If you see giant ads that pop up, please take a screenshot and email it to me. We don’t allow that shit.
