Apologies to those who’ve tried to access Sparrow Chat in the last few days. Some members of the loathsome scum club of the internet, “Hackers Anonymous”, with nothing better to do with their time than research new ways to infect websites, managed to penetrate the blog’s defenses causing some downtime while I located and removed the offending intrusion.
Hopefully, all is now well, and thoroughly disinfected.
My thanks to WWW for making me aware of the problem.
While every attempt has been made to remove the virus, with hundreds of files to check it’s easy to overlook something. Please inform me at once, by a comment to this post or by email (top of left sidebar), if your anti-virus software reports anything suspicious while browsing Sparrow Chat.
