As you may have noticed, the site was running a little slowly over the last couple of days. That’s because someone attempted to hack it. They failed.
What they did manage to do was try way too long while we fed them bad data so we could isolate and identify them. That situation has now been resolved.
We’re very proud to report that absolutely no private data was compromised in any way. It is paramount for Mr. Sims and the whole team that all user information be kept in the strictest confidence at all times. While some have called the security we use “a little paranoid,” we feel it’s worth it.
Finally, if you’re a customer of Derrel’s online store, have no fear: Your personal information is stored in an isolated system which was not impacted, and your billing info (credit card, etc.) is never recorded or stored on our servers for this very reason. Since final transactions are handled by PayPal, we keep that information from ever passing through our own systems as a precaution.
As always, we take our commitment to your privacy very seriously.
