Apologies: AVweb Suffers Hack Attack


An apparent “denial of service” attack took down AVweb for several hours this afternoon. The system is back up and running, and new security measures have been installed. We are resending today’s Flash as a convenience for readers and a service to advertisers.

We are also repopulating our news feed with the latest breaking information. Consequently, if AVweb Flash appears in your inbox twice today, be advised it’s merely our effort to maintain continuity of service. Likewise, any advertiser who feels today’s downtime negatively impacted their business should contact AVweb’s sales department for make-good advertising, which will be happily honored.

We wish to thank all of our valued readers and faithful advertisers for their continued support through the last few difficult days.
