Over the weekend one of our web servers was hacked…fortunately it wasn’t our main e-commerce server. The server is in fact in the middle of being de-commissioned. The hack happened around a day after our software vendor reported a vulnerability and provided a patch.
You sure don’t get much time to fix things. You either fix it immediately or bang too late.
Thankfully, our system was locked down enough to prevent a root level penetration, only Apache got nailed. Everything is ok now, the software has been patched and fingers crossed 🙂
Just goes to show what a wild west show the Internet really is.
